The theme of this year's MTS/IEEE Annual Conference is “Our Harsh and Fragile Ocean,” or “How to protect the Fragile from the Harsh with application of modern technology and traditional knowledge working together” will bring consideration of the issues of Climate Change, Diminishing Arctic Ice Pack, Ocean Acidification, Increase vessel traffic in Arctic waters, Energy extraction and much more.
Alaska’s history is deeply connected with the sea. From the Alaska Native peoples who knew Alaskan waters best and relied on them for food and transportation, to explorers like Captain James Cook seeking the Northwest Passage in the age of sail, to modern maritime activity and new shipping lanes emerging in a changing Arctic. And the 2017 MTS/IEEE OES OCEANS conference is a piece of the next chapter of Alaska and its waters. Anchorage, Alaska hosts OCEANS North America for the first time in 2017, September 18-21.
