Florida Estuary and Coastal Monitoring - Looking Ahead to 2030

Join us for a TechSurge focused on transformative solutions for integrated coastal monitoring systems in Florida's estuaries and nearshore coastal waters. We welcome presentations that highlight revolutionary new technologies and system designs as well as technologies that can be adapted for coastal monitoring from other uses for significant impact in this focus area.
