Florida Section

Florida Section

The MTS Florida Section has opportunities to collaborate with many university oceanography centers as well as state and private institutions. The State of Florida is focused on using marine technology to help address coastal and weather issues – providing the Section a great opportunity to work together to advance marine technology.

Upcoming Section Events

On November 9, 2023, the Florida Ocean Alliance will host the "Coastal Resilience: Protecting Florida’s Blue Economy & Future" Leadership Meeting. Florida Ocean Alliance members and marine and coastal experts and advocates from around the state will gather at Port Tampa Bay - Terminal 2 for discussions on the changing climate and the impacts on Florida’s natural infrastructure and coastal communities as well as the blue economy.

Following the program, join their speakers, sponsors, and guests for an onboard reception, silent auction, and sunset cruise hosted by the Alliance Board of Directors and Port Tampa Bay. Marine Technology Society Florida Section members are encouraged to attend the event.
