The Symposium on Decadal Variability is part of a series of decadal symposia organized by ICES, NAFO and IMR, where researchers will convene to review the variability of North Atlantic environmental conditions and marine ecosystems over the past decade. The intention is to understand the relationship between ecosystem components and how they influence the distribution, abundance and productivity of living marine resources.
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) will provide a forum for experts, practitioners and ocean users to discuss climate change and the oceans, the theme of its 4th biennial Oceans of Knowledge conference. Organised by the Institute’s Special Interest Group (SIG) on Operational Oceanography, the conference will address three key themes: firstly, the sustainable use of the ocean and its resources, secondly, its role in natural and engineered climate mitigation and thirdly, rising sea levels and coastal vulnerability.
The World Congress of Marine Stations (WCMS) will bring together those responsible for Marine Stations and Marine Station networks from around the world to discuss various issues including the status and future of marine stations and how they contribute to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. A key focus will be on progress towards the full establishment of the World Association of Marine Stations (WAMS).
