2020 Mid-Atlantic Ocean Forum
The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO) through its Mid-Atlantic Committee on the Ocean (MACO) convened the second Mid-Atlantic Ocean Forum virtually on May 19, 2020. The Forum provided interactive opportunities for participants to engage the presenters, ask questions, provide input on MACO activities, and “brainstorm” recommendations for additional regional collaboration.
Alicia Barton, President and CEO of the New York Energy Research and Development, provided opening keynote remarks that were followed by a plenary panel titled, “Perspectives on Policy, Technology and Climate for Future Ocean Planning.” The panelists included:
- Deerin Babb-Brott, Principal Assistant Director for Oceans and Environment, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
- Walt Musial, Offshore Wind Lead, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
- Charles Stock, NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
