About the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is a private, non-profit organization on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, dedicated to marine research, engineering, and higher education. Established in 1930 on a recommendation from the National Academy of Sciences, its primary mission is to understand the ocean and its interaction with the Earth as a whole, and to communicate a basic understanding of the ocean's role in the changing global environment.
The Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) conducts research in the Arctic, Antarctic and in oceans of temperate and high latitudes. The AWI coordinates polar research in Germany, and provides important infrastructure, such as the research icebreaker Polarstern and research stations in the Arctic and Antarctic for international scientific enterprises. The Alfred Wegener Institute is one of 15 research centres of the 'Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft' (Helmholtz Association), the largest scientific organisation in Germany.
We are scientists, engineers, and conservationists. When you’re passionate about something, it shows. Lynker started as a scientific company focused on geographic information systems (GIS). As Lynker grew, we embedded this simple but key concept into the culture of our organization, continually achieving higher levels of performance. We stay connected across projects and fields, exposing teams to new ideas and encouraging innovation. We honor our mission to deliver high quality solutions that promote global environmental sustainability and economic prosperity as a trusted partner to governments, communities, and industry.
Principle Power Inc.
Principle Power, www.principlepowerinc.com, is a US technology developer based in Seattle, WA, focused on the offshore wind energy market. Principle Power's enabling product, a patented floating wind turbine support structure called the WindFloat, permits the siting of offshore wind turbines in water depths greater than 40m, thus exploiting the world's highest capacity wind resources. Offshore wind installations in these water depths have not been feasible, to date, due to economic and technological limitations. A 2MW prototype of the WindFloat is currently operating offshore of Portugal and is the first offshore wind turbine to be installed without the use of heavy lift equipment.
Monterey Bay Aquarium
Launched in 1999, the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch® program is a key component of the Aquarium's Sustainable Seafood Initiative. The Initiative works to transform the seafood market in ways that support ocean-friendly fishing and fish-farming operations. Seafood Watch® provides science-based seafood recommendations through its website and pocket guides, and works with over 180 partners nationwide to educate consumers and businesses about this important issue.
The Commission is committed to protecting and enhancing California’s coast and ocean for present and future generations. It does so through careful planning and regulation of environmentally-sustainable development, rigorous use of science, strong public participation, education, and effective intergovernmental coordination.
Saildrone provides comprehensive turnkey data solutions for maritime security, ocean mapping, and ocean data. The company provides real-time access to critical data from any ocean on earth, 24/7/365, and uses proprietary software applications to transform that data into actionable insights and intelligence. Saildrone’s fleet of uncrewed surface vehicles (USVs), powered by renewable wind and solar power, have a minimal carbon footprint and are designed to make ocean intelligence cost-effective at scale. Saildrones operate 24/7/365, without the need for a crewed support vehicle, and have sailed over 750,000 nautical miles from the Arctic to the Antarctic and spent more than 17,000 days at sea in the harshest ocean conditions on the planet.
Formed in 2009, the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS) is a consortium of organisations engaged in marine science and represents the majority of Scotland's marine research capacity.
A.I.S., Inc. (AIS) was founded in 1988 to provide fully trained protected species observers and certified inspectors for harbor and river dredging operations. With more than three decades of experience supporting government, the private sector and academia, AIS has evolved into a diversified provider of marine science services. Our accomplishments are based on our ability to mobilize and support a highly qualified and geographically dispersed workforce of professionals, our commitment to customer service, and our innovative management approaches.
