Earthzine ( was established in 2007 as an outreach activity for the GEO (Group on Earth Observations) and GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) initiative. As a newly adopted publication of the Oceanic Engineering Society, we seek contributions to bolster Earthzine’s coverage of oceans-related activities.

Topics may include project developments (especially concerning the European Commission’s Horizon2020, and the equivalent in the U.S. and Asia/Pacific), national or regional achievements, industrial projects with societal impacts, etc.

We seek submissions spanning many possible applications and research initiatives including:

‰Û¢åÊåÊ åÊship and pollution monitoring

‰Û¢åÊåÊ åÊcoastal zones surveillance

‰Û¢åÊåÊ åÊdeep sea exploration

‰Û¢åÊåÊ åÊnew technological outcomes for underwater missions

‰Û¢åÊåÊ åÊspaceborne sensing of the oceans

‰Û¢åÊåÊ åÊactive and passive sensing of physical events (wind, waves, currents).

The theme issue is scheduled for June 22-Sept. 20, 2014. We seek to publish articles from all regions of the globe.
