Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue invites contributions related to technologies and sensors used to explore the marine environment, proposed as extended abstracts at the 2021 IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Sea.

The 2021 IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for the Sea (MetroSea) (http://www.metrosea.org/home) serves as a forum to gather contributions from people working to develop instrumentation and measurement methods related to the sea. Traditionally addressed to engineers and experts in measurement instrumentations and sensors, MetroSea is currently open to contributions on measurements in the field of marine biology and ecology. This Special Issue aims to collect papers presented at the 2021 International Workshop “MetroSea” related to the following topics:

  • Exploration and monitoring of water ecosystems;
  • Biodiversity;
  • Conservation;
  • Marine biology;
  • Marine ecology;
  • Advanced technologies;
  • Qualification/calibration of sensors and instruments;
  • Metrological methodology;
  • Standards and Best Practices
