The leading international conference focusing on inland, coastal, and ocean optics!

Join us in fall 2018 to explore and expand the many facets of ocean color remote sensing and optical oceanography, including basic research, technological development, environmental management, and policy.

The Conference

Ocean optics attracts a diverse audience of active practitioners in this field, including oceanographers, marine ecologists, limnologists, optical engineers, marine resource managers, and policy professionals from around the world.

Conference presentations will include the science of optics across all aquatic environments, research, and applications, including (but not limited to) biogeochemistry, environmental management and applications, instruments, techniques and observational systems, remote sensing, phytoplankton ecology, radiative transfer and optical theory, global change, and benthic processes. Attendees will attend plenary presentations during the day and interact with colleagues during scientific poster session receptions held in the exhibit/poster hall in the early evening.

In addition to invited and contributed oral and poster presentations, the conference will provide the opportunity for community-wide discussions in the form of town halls, workshops, and short courses. Small group meetings are also convened providing attendees with the opportunity to meet with collaborators or fellow committee members.
