Session Chairperson
Zenon Medina-Cetina, Chair and President, Society for Underwater Technology (SUT-US)
Kimberly Faulk, Chair, Offshore Site Characterization and Geotechnics Committee (OSIG) of SUT-US
The Society for Underwater Technology in the US presents a technical session reflecting the breadth of multi-disciplinary specialties found across its technical committees, including Offshore Site Characterization and Geotechnics (OSIG), Subsea Engineering and Operations (SEO), Environmental Forces (GEF), Robotics and Automation (RA), and Offshore Renewables (OR). Papers in this session will cover the latest topics in research and applications in underwater technology, from probabilistic stratigraphy integration (geology, geotechnical, geophysical and geomeatics), installation of foundations systems, response of monopiles foundations for windfarms, probabilistic pipeline routing, a review of energy conservation and the design of floating renewables, to a multi-institutional state of the art review on AUVs.
