Summary

The Instrumentation for Monitoring around Marine Renewable Energy Devices expert workshop will be held on the University of Washington campus in Seattle in June 2013. Attendance at the workshop is by invitation only. The objectives of the two-day meeting are to:

  • Increase our knowledge of monitoring needs around marine renewable energy devices, identify available instrumentation to meet those needs, identify gaps currently available instrumentation, and develop solutions to address those gaps;
  • Develop a consensus among experts on methods for applying instrumentation to meet high priority monitoring needs; and
  • Provide a forum to foster new and continuing collaboration around monitoring effects of ocean energy.

 

This workshop was summarized in a final report and webinar.
