2010 Ocean Sciences Meeting
22-26 February 2010
The 2010 Ocean Sciences Meeting is being held 22–26 February 2010 at the Oregon Convention Center. The Program Committee is developing a Union-wide science program that will cover topics in all areas of ocean sciences.
From Observation to Prediction in the 21st Century
Stewardship of marine resources in the 21st Century demands the development of predictive tools based on models and field observations. The challenge of developing these tools forms the theme of the 2010 Ocean Sciences meeting.
This overarching theme emphasizes efforts to link observations and models to form superior predictions across multiple space and time scales. It encompasses research focusing on some aspect of observations, models, and also field or laboratory experiments that ultimately seek to enhance our predictive ability, as well as efforts focusing on education, outreach, and marine policy.
New abstract submission software, Abstract Central, is coming in time for the 2010 Ocean Sciences Meeting. Abstract Central will provide a secure, complete solution for abstract submission as well as program itinerary creation which can be downloaded to your mobile electronic devices.
