Webinars for Marine and Wind Energy and the Environment

Tethys hosts regular webinars pertaining to topics of environmental concern, as a means to effectively disseminate new information and research efforts to a large international audience of stakeholders. Anyone is welcome to attend these live webinars and participate in a live question and answer session with the presenters. Information for attending these live webinars is distributed to a public mailing list (separate lists for wind and water). Ongoing webinars on Tethys are sponsored by OES-EnvironmentalWREN, SEER, and other projects.

You can sign up to receive invitations to live webinars here.
