Musings on Communications within the Ocean Research Community: Then and the Future

Susan K. Kubany | Omnet, Inc., Staunton, VA, USA

First Paragraph

Long before science communication began to travel the Internet, ocean scientists had Omnet. The history of communications within the ocean research community is rooted in the story of my marriage to and life with Bob Heinmiller, the company we built together, and the passion we shared for a new technology—a cutting-edge technology—far-reaching in its implications for ocean science, especially in 1980.
