January 29 Ocean Connector Presentation by Dalhousie’s Dr. Susanne Craig on Ocean Optical Measuremenents

Susanne gave a great talk about the past, present and future of ocean optical measurements at the Ocean Connector event on January 29 at the T-Room.   She took us all the way back to the invention of the Secci disk in the 19th century up to the modern day use of colour satellites and in situ sensors.   The talk finished with a very interesting discussion of how autonomous air vehicles may become a popular platform for ocean optical measurements.   This resulted in a good discussion among those present about how industry might best engage on this future research trend.
