Every year since 1985, the Societat Catalana de Física (SCF, http://blogs.iec.cat/scfis/) and the Institut Menorquí d’Estudis (IME, http:// www.ime.cat) organize the conference entitled Trobades Científiques de la Mediterrània (TCM), with the support of several academic institutions. The main objective is to provide a framework for the exchange of knowledge on a current research topic within the field of physics and to promote the communication and collaboration between scientists and technicians of the neighboring Catalonia and Balearic Islands.
The topic of the TCM 2016 is the sea. It obviously includes physical oceanography, but also chemical, biological and geological oceanography. Theoretical, numerical and observational studies covering from regional to planetary scales are welcome. Although the focus will be on the Mediterranean, studies focusing on other regions will also be accepted. The TCM 2016 will thus be a multidisciplinary forum aimed at fostering the interaction between the different parcels of Marine Sciences (you may see the invited speakers here).
