ECO Magazine Launches Deep Dive Series for 2023

Three-part oceanography special edition announces collaborations with Schmidt Ocean Institute and the National Oceanography Centre

STUART, Fla., USA – January 24, 2023: Environment, Coastal & Offshore (ECO) Magazine, an international applied marine science trade publication, today announced details of its three-part Deep Dive series of special editions in collaboration with Schmidt Ocean Institute and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC). Each digital issue, scheduled for publishing in March, June, and September 2023, will shine a multimedia spotlight on trending topics of oceanography and give readers an exclusive, in-depth perspective on the expanding field of applied marine science and ocean research. 

The announcement kicks off a milestone year for ECO Magazine, 2023 being the publication’s tenth year in circulation, and follows several editorial changes in late 2022.

“Over the last ten years ECO Magazine has consistently produced high-quality articles on marine science, technology, exploration, and the environment. We are honored to be collaborating with ECO Magazine and NOC on this special deep dive series that will delve into the latest knowledge in ocean observation, marine environmental research, and deep-sea exploration—including areas of science that we look forward to supporting over the next few years on our newly refit 110 meter global-class research vessel,” said Schmidt Ocean Institute executive director Dr. Jyotika Virmani.

The ECO Magazine editorial team welcomes contributions in the form of written articles, webinars, videos, and podcasts for the following editions:
