Dr. Anatoliy Ivakin is a Senior Principal Physicist at the Applied Physics Lab of the University of Washington. Anatoliy Ivakin's research interests include wave propagation and scattering in continuous and discrete media with rough interfaces and volume heterogeneity, theoretical and numerical modeling of random processes and fields, signal processing and inversion techniques, environmental acoustics and applications to underwater reverberation and remote sensing, sea-bed and sea-ice characterization, marine ecology, as well as detection and assessment of oil, gas, and gas hydrates, and environmental monitoring and evaluation of risks related to offshore oil and gas exploration, production, and transportation. Dr. Ivakin joined APL-UW as a Senior Physicist in 2001 and was elected to Fellowship in the Acoustical Society of America the same year.
 
 
Dr. Darrell R. Jackson is engaged in theoretical and experimental research in ocean acoustics at the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington. This includes random scattering in the ocean, acoustic remote sensing of the ocean bottom, and related signal processing methods.

Dr. Christopher D. Jones's research interests include both forward inverse problems in ocean acoustics at the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington. He is involved in research on scattering from and within ocean sediments, as well as inversions of acoustic signals to examine biological activity, hydrothermal plume flow, and particle size distributions.

Dr. Peter A. Rona (deceased) was a Professor in the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey from 1995 to 2014.  He conceived the idea of COVIS, that is an imaging sonar platform designed to capture hydrothermal flow, while a scientist at NOAA. He instigated, directed and supported much of the development and application of innovative methods to acoustically image and measure seafloor hydrothermal flow. He was a pioneer in research on ocean ridges ann continental margin processes who has made many discoveries including the first hydrothermal vents found in the deep Atlantic ocean. He published extensively (over 250 scientific papers, 5 edited books and multiple edited issues of journals) and lectured at public science centers. 
 
 
Dr. Deborah Silver is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Associate Dean of Professional and Continuing Education, School of Engineering at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. She received a B.S. from Columbia University School of Engineering, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University. Dr. Silver's research specialty is Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics.
