CELEBRATING THE PAST TO AWAKEN THE FUTURE*

Organized in association with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography

In this special edition of the Catch the Next Wave Conference, we honor the achievements of Scripps oceanographer Walter Munk as he approaches his 100th birthday and as he continues to contribute to the future direction of ocean science and technology. In keeping with past Catch the Next Wave conferences, we take a look at where some of the many aspects of ocean science that Walter has worked on in his long and distinguished career are heading, and how diverse technological innovations might contribute to progress.  The aim is to explore some examples of the trajectory of technological innovation outside of the ocean community with the objective of sparking new ideas across disciplines and sectors.
