It was a pleasure to attend the U.S. Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology's (SOST's) "Opportunities and Actions Roundtable." It was encouraging to learn about the latest findings, R&D, and emerging tech related to ocean science and blue economy, in particular around climate change. I was truly inspired by the ideas and dialog shared at the roundtable. I look forward to the next event and to continuing the conversation on climate change, resilient ocean science and technology infrastructure, and a diverse and inclusive blue workforce. SOST is focused on advancing Federal ocean science and technology priorities and creating a more prosperous, healthy, equitable, and sustainable ocean for all.
