TechSurge Workshops
The ongoing MTS TechSurge programs feature hot-topic workshops that move knowledge forward. TechSurge began in 2009 with the Marine Technology for Offshore Wind Power Workshop, and continued in 2010 with Ocean Observing: Thinking Outside the Basin. The idea behind TechSurge is to offer workshops where the planning and logistics is provided by the MTS home office, leaving the committee and section leadership to focus on the technical program. View programs of past TechSurge workshops.
