SCOAR Town Hall at the 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting

The UNOLS Science Committee for Oceanographic Aircraft Research (SCOAR) will host a Town Hall (937-TH19) at the 2022 Ocean Sciences on Expanding the Reach of the Research Fleet: Autonomous (and Piloted) Airborne Systems in Support of Ocean Sciences.

The Town Hall is scheduled for Friday, February 25 from 12:00 pm eastern standard time and will be held virtually. The community will have the opportunity to hear the latest information about the use of airborne resources to enhance oceanographic research as well as discuss ideas on how aircraft can be used to enhance marine science in the future.

The Town Hall will include a series of lightning presentations where scientists are invited to present one slide in 1-3 minutes discussing any of the following:

  • how they have used aircraft in their respective research
  • how they would like to use aircraft to support their science
  • ideas on the future use of aircraft to support marine science.

The session is about both sharing what has been done and gaining insights on what else might be possible and further, what requirements future science may have. This will be the first in a series of discussions hosted by SCOAR.

We hope you will be a part of the discussion and consider presenting a slide. If you have used, hope to use or have ideas on how airborne resources can expand oceanographic research, please sign up here.

This is a great, informal opportunity to learn about and be a part of the oceanographic aircraft community.
