Innovations on the Horizon: Research Needs for the Marine Transportation System of the Future

The five committees in the Transportation Research Board's (TRB’s) Technical Activities Division Marine Group propose and share research and provide forums for transportation professionals to address issues related to ports and channels, inland water transportation, marine environment, marine safety and human factors, and ferry transportation. For this special issue of TR News, focusing on the marine transportation system, members of the TRB Marine Board and Marine Group committees chose five critically important topics for innovation and research in the MTS. Articles in this issue examine these research priorities including emissions reduction, automation, big data, and resiliency by 2050.
