Prof. Kim’s new book on ocean resources now available

Can ocean thermal energy conversion and seawater utilization assist small island developing states? That’s just one of the important questions that a new book edited by Civil & Environmental Engineering Professor Albert Kim asks. “Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC): Past, Present, and Progress” is a fascinating read that readdresses the past achievements, present developments, and future progress of ocean thermal energy, and dares the reader to consider how the world can advance the utilization of ocean resources given that the 21st century has been characterized as an era of natural resource depletion, causing humanity to be faced with several threats due to the lack of food, energy, and water. It highlights the fact that climate change and sea-level rise are at unprecedented levels–phenomena that make predicting the future of ocean resources more complicated.
