Arctic Smarts: Training Innovators and Explorers

Newfoundland and Labrador is preparing the next wave of ocean technology experts   When it comes to the Arctic, the world still has a lot to learn. With just 10% of its vast expanse having been charted to date and much about its environment still unknown, the Arctic remains one of the most mysterious places on Earth. As a new frontier with natural resource potential, the Arctic is also an area of increasing international interest and economic activity. As activity in the Arctic increases and new opportunities emerge, Newfoundland and Labrador’s academic and training institutions are

US Hearing to Focus on New Ocean Technologies

The Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, chaired by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), will hold a hearing next week to examine the proliferation of new ocean technologies, how such technologies could improve government performance, and any impediments that exist in the use of such technologies. The federal government is responsible for recording, understanding, monitoring and protecting the oceans in the Exclusive Economic Zones which surround United States and territories out to 200 miles, and even in areas of the ocean beyond those littoral zones.  Understanding and monitorin
