As the technology for the Ocean Sciences and Engineering is advanced rapidly, the real-time data production will revolutionize the field investigation and laboratory analysis in many ways which will have the impact over the entire oceanographic paradigm in the end. This session will review the state of art technology for the ocean investigation on real-time and/or near real-time basis and will discuss the impact on the research and educational horizons made possible by it. Each nation will demonstrate their ocean monitoring network and their application. The exhibits from ocean monitoring companies are to occur in conjunction with this session.
