Date:10/30/2007

HOBOKEN, N.J. Monmouth University's Urban Coast Institute will host its third annual Ocean Future Symposium, on Wednesday, October 31, 2007, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., in the Woodrow Wilson auditorium. The symposium, titled "The Future of an Ocean Literate Society: Building Communities for Action," will envision a future where media and other nontraditional means of communication will be used to increase the general publics coastal and ocean literacy.

The symposium will be followed by a "Champion of the Ocean" awards luncheon, during which Stevens Institute of Technology professor Robert B. Abel, will be honored with a posthumous Ocean and Coastal Leadership award. His widow, Nancy Abel, will accept the award on his behalf.

Dr. Robert B. Abel worked as a chemical oceanographer at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, served as chief of oceanographic surveys for the USN Hydrographic Office, and as staff oceanographer to the Vice President (1960-67). Abel was also the founding director of the National Sea Grant Program in 1967, and subsequently served as associate vice president of Texas A&M University, director of the New Jersey Sea Grant College Program, and president of the New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium. Most recently, he was a senior scientist at Stevens where he served as Director of International Programs for Stevens Davidson Laboratory.

Abels perspective included expertise on the role of cooperative technology reducing tensions in the Middle East, where he managed 16 cooperative projects during the past quarter century. His book, "The Influence of Technical Cooperation on Reducing Tension in the Middle East," was sponsored by the US Institute of Peace. He received two Distinguished Service Awards from the United States government and one from the Egyptian government, and has been honored in Japan, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia.

Panelists for the symposium include Jerry Schubel, president and CEO of Aquarium of the Pacific; Steve Ma
