IOA News Letters Summary

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Oceanic Engineering Society will hold a Conference on "Ocean Technology for the Pacific in the 1990's" ,Oceans' 91,in Honolulu, Hawaii, U. S. A. from September 30 to October 3, 1991 to review and discuss advances and opportunities in ocean technologies as they are employed in the developments of ocean resources and space. The program of this conference will recognize the great potential of the Pacific in the 21st Century with Hawaii at its hub and the discussion will focus on the benefits of newly developed ocean technologies to the Pacific Basin. Over four hundred technical abstracts are being used to structure the broad scope of the technical program. Advanced technology areas include acoustics, ocean resources assessment and development, instrumentation systems, remote-sensing and underwater robotics. The technical program will be co-chaired by Joseph R. Vadus of the NOAA, National Ocean Service; and Paul C. Yuen of the University of Hawaii. The Technical Program Committee of this Conference has scheduled 7 technical sessions on Ocean Energy and 2 technical sessions on Upwelling/Ranching. The Committee has also arranged a 90-minute special panel on ocean energy opportunities to discuss development progress, trend, markets, cooperative ventures, and networking possibilities related to ocean energy development. Technical papers, pertinent to the OTEC/DOWA, to be presented in the Oceans '91 include:
