About CWTM 2024

The CWTM Workshop, now in its thirteenth edition, has a rich history of providing a dynamic platform for the global ocean community. This event serves as a catalyst for technical information exchange and fosters collaboration among experts passionate about measuring current, waves, and turbulence. Our mission is to advance the field of Current, Wave, and Turbulence Measurement and Applications by showcasing cutting-edge research and innovations.

A Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development

In 2024, we are thrilled to bring together researchers, engineers, and ocean enthusiasts to explore the latest advancements in current, wave, and turbulence measurement techniques. This year’s workshop takes on particular significance as we align with the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, emphasizing the crucial role of these technologies in our quest for a sustainable future.

A Decades-Long Legacy

The roots of the CWTM Workshop trace back to the Tenth Working Conference on Current Measurement Technology (CMTC), which marked the transition to the Current, Waves, and Turbulence Measurement Workshop. This transformation represented the evolving landscape of oceanic engineering and our dedication to encompassing a broader scope.

Over the years, we have covered a wide range of topics, from Quality of Current Measurements to Upper Ocean, Boundary Layer, Moving Platform, and Non-Invasive Current Measurement. Each edition has been a testament to the continuous evolution of technology and our commitment to staying at the forefront of this field.

A Welcoming Community

At CWTM2024, we welcome both seasoned experts and newcomers alike. We believe in the power of collaboration and learning from one another. Join us in Wanchese, North Carolina, USA, in March, where you can expect a warm welcome and ample opportunities for interaction.
