Delaney Keynote Speaker at CARIS 2012 - 27/02/2012

John Delaney, Professor of Oceanography, and Jerome M. Paros, Endowed Chair in Sensor Networks at the University of Washington, are the latest speakers to join the panel of keynotes at CARIS 2012. Delaney, who joined the University of Washington faculty in 1977, has published nearly 100 scientific papers and articles, and has served as chief scientist on more than 45 oceanographic research cruises, many of which have included Deep Submergence Vehicles and Remotely Operated Vehicles.

In September 2005, he co-led the VISIONS'05 research expedition, which successfully broadcast the first-ever live, high-definition video from the seafloor across the world. Scientists, educators and the general public viewed the real-time broadcasts from the underwater volcanoes of the NE Pacific over cable and satellite television and on the web.

He is a passionate and tenacious advocate for launching next-generation ocean science and educational capabilities. You can hear more from John Delaney on TED Talks.
