Trauthwein, Associate Publisher & Editor Email: Year-end serves as an opportune time to not only reß ect on the year past but to project the trends to emerge. While my crystal ball is certainly not with- out fault, there are several fairly well-developed themes that should prove to provide a good percentage of our readership with buoyant business in 2014 and beyond.  A Healthy Ocean The fact that the worldÕs waterways are under attack from a variety of forces, from increased levels of pollution and acidity to name just two, is hardly a news ß ash. However 2014 could prove pivotal for several key initiatives to help turn that tide. Courtesy of my 20+ year afÞ liation with MTR sister-publication Maritime Reporter & Engineering News , I am happy to report that environmental initiatives in the maritime sector Ð which largely until now have served as nice brochure fodder and little else Ð are commanding real action and yielding real results. Ships designed, built and operated today are far cleaner and environmentally benign than ever before, and shipowners have come to realize, too, that ÒECO ShipÓ designs can be far more fuel efÞ cient. Offshore Energy The balance of world energy has changed virtually overnight, with the U.S. Ð courtesy of hydraulic fracturing and the resulting oil and gas boom Ð steaming toward energy independence in the not too distant future. The business of milking fresh resources from Þ elds thought dead, discovering and recovering resources from Þ elds in ever deeper waters, and the task to continually monitor and evaluate inshore water systems will present perhaps the best business opportunities for the coming year.  Government Business The sting of Sequestration was felt by one and all, and the real- ity of ever-tightening government budgets is the new reality. But as we went to press, it appeared that the U.S. Congress had hashed out a budget deal, a deal that would restore many of the Sequestration cuts. Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy continues to do more with less as it depends more heavily on unmanned underwater systems and remote sensors to help it accomplish its missions.Download our AppiPhone & AndroidNovember/December 20136 MTRMTR #9 (1-17).indd 6MTR #9 (1-17).indd 612/13/2013 2:23:18 PM12/13/2013 2:23:18 PM
