"One Ocean" emphasizes the vital need for global cooperation and engagement to protect our internationally connected waters, as well as the critical role that the "One Ocean" plays in global commerce, weather, jobs, food supply, recreation, national defense, and mineral and energy resources. "One Ocean" reinforces the many interrelationships among the scientific and engineering disciplines, and this conference provides an unequal led opportunity to network with colleagues from across the entire spectrum of oceanic and marine interests.
