Objectives of the CWTMA Workshop are to provide the ocean community with a forum for technical information exchange and to promote coordination among those concerned with measuring current, waves and turbulence. Our goal is to ensure that the CWTMA Workshop remains the “go-to” forum for people who need to know how to measure ocean motions and how to translate those measurements into meaningful information.

SCOPE – Development of sensors for measuring currents, waves, turbulence; use of these sensors to study transport, coastal erosion, wave climate, and currents that affect marine operations. New technologies to make flow and wave observations such as radar remote sensing, correlation sonar, drifters, and satellite observation are included.

KEYWORDS – Current measurement, surface waves, turbulence, ocean instrumentation.

  • Topic Areas
    For the 2019 workshop we are soliciting the submission of papers on topic areas that address emerging technologies or issues of timely interest to the oceanographic community, including:
    • Direct Measurements of Currents, Waves, and Turbulence
    • Indirect Current and Wave Measurement Techniques
    • Measurement Platforms and Applications
    • Operational Systems

We also continue to encourage technical papers on Currents, Waves, Turbulence Measurement and Applications topics traditionally covered in previous CWTM workshops.

Participation in the CWTMA Workshop by academia, scientists and engineers from industrial and commercial organizations is especially encouraged in order to share knowledge in this evolving field and help to define measurement requirements.

Papers presented and uploaded to the CWTMA website will be published in IEEE Xplore. This is a citable reference.
