Abstract:

The MarChem93 workshop was held August 2-4, 1993. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together scientists from industry, universities, and government organizations and encourage them to improve ocean chemical instrumentation OCI. The development of OCI is not progressing rapidly because 1. Funding is limited to SBIR and STTR programs, 2. Market size is small and commercial applications are limited, and 3. Instrument developers are not organized to communicate effectively on a continuous basis. Recommendations are 1. Establish MarChem as a virtual community on the Internet, 2. Continue to hold the MarChem workshop every two years, 3. Exploit large markets with applications for OCI such as environmental chemistry, and 4. The Executive Committee should have regular meetings to identify new members, new technology, and funding opportunities. The Executive Committee should identify research efforts in the field of chemical oceanographic instrumentation and recommend these opportunities to the appropriate funding agencies as suitable topics for Announcements of Opportunity, Broad Agency Announcements, or Request for Proposals. Marine chemistry, Chemical sensors, Chemical oceanography, Chemical instrumentation, Oceanic chemist, Chemical analyses.
