Papers and Presentations

In addition to producing EddyWatch® and RouteWatch® charts, reports, and hindcast studies, our Oceanographers are often invited to present technical papers at industry and academic conferences, and publish reports in various journals. This is our contribution to the scientific community and an opportunity for us to keep abreast of innovative technology. A more general overview of the technology available to Oceanographers in support of Offshore Oil and Gas Operations can be found here.
