In Pod10 of the Underwater Technology Podcast SUT CEO Steve Hall interviews Ariel Troiso, Chair of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO, & Dr Francesca Santoro of the IOC office in Venice in a special extra edition for World Oceans Day (should of course be 'Ocean' without the 's' - One Planet, One Ocean!). They talk about sustained ocean observing, the forthcoming UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, ocean literacy, and the role of industry and learned societies like SUT in ensuring that scientists and policymakers have access to ocean data, and that humanity exercises good stewardship of ocean resources. Did you know that scientists are even looking at creating digital twins for ocean processes?
Apologies for audio quality of first interview - we struggled to get a good clear recording with Ariel - gremlins on those deep ocean internet cables from Argentina!
