In the life of every university there are legends – tales of high adventure and discovery – some passed on from generation to generation, some lost in the passage of time. This summer marked the 50th anniversary of one of those events.

Researchers from across Memorial University will showcase the latest oceans research and technology at an international conference in St. John’s this week.

The Oceans ‘14 Marine Technology Society/ Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (MTS/IEEES) Conference will bring together leading experts from around the world to address challenges and identify solutions related to oceans.
