RBR Technical Workshop
The RBR technical workshop offers an outstanding venue for presentations, technical discussions, and networking opportunities focused around modern ocean measurements. The workshop invites participation from all disciplines of oceanography and engineering and is particularly well suited to contributions from ocean scientists and engineers, field and instrument technicians, and system integrators. This workshop is an opportunity to share updates on projects, methods, successes and challenges, and new developments. Members of RBR's science and engineering team will present on sensor technology, new products and systems, and software tools.
The workshop took place on February 16, 2020, at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego, CA. To download the presentations please click on the links below.
