Program Director and Principal Investigator
John Delaney has been a passionate tenacious advocate for launching next-generation ocean science and educational capabilities for decades. New approaches will be made possible by distributed robot-sensor networks on the seafloor that enable adaptive, real-time interactive research on natural processes operating throughout the world’s oceans. Since 1997, Delaney has directed development of the cabled network in the northeast Pacific Ocean that has evolved into the NSF Ocean Observatories Initiative Regional Scale Nodes program. Delaney is a Professor of Oceanography and holds the Jerome M. Paros Endowed Chair in Sensor Networks. For more info...
