Symposia on Biogeochemistry at IUGG Montreal

The International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans (IAPSO) is sponsoring two symposia on biogeochemistry, which will be held at the 27th International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) General Assembly. IAPSO are sponsoring or co-sponsoring a total of 31 symposia at the event, including others on topics such as marine plastics and ocean acidification.

the two symposia linked to biogeochemistry are:

- Physics and Biogeochemistry of Semi-enclosed, Shelf Seas, and Coastal Zones

Your Ocean, Your Future: Building on Prof. Mário Ruivo’s Legacy

Prof. Mário Ruivo made many key contributions to marine science and policy in Europe. EurOcean have created this commemorative event as a way of both remembering his legacy, and to pass on his way of thinking to future generations of marine scientists. During this special event, Professor Ruivo´s contribution to the worlds knowledge of the ocean and approaches to improving its management will be celebrated. Mário was instrumental in ensuring that Lisbon host Expo 1998 – the central theme of which was “The Oceans: A Heritage for the Future”.

Conference on Ocean Observation Systems

With the establishment of the European Ocean Observing System (EOOS) as a coordinating framework for better alignment and integration of Europe´s ocean observing capacity, and the results from its recent stakeholder consultation, it is appropriate to reflect on the role Eurocean Members, complementary initiatives such as those of the European Research Vessel Operators (ERVO) and other public and private stakeholders can play in developing and supporting an EOOS action plan

Uhinak Congress

The Uhinak Marine Research Unit Congress will host a marine conference from 6 to 7 March 2018. The aim of Uhinak is to get to know the needs of agents facing climate change and to find out the scientific contributions to meet those needs. In order to achieve that objective, Uhinak sets out a multidisciplinary approach that brings together the different stakeholders: scientists, technicians, and administrations.

The conference is aimed at businesses, institutions and organisations in general, that act and see opportunities regarding the impact of climate change on the coast.

Copernicus Marine Service: An EU asset for sustainable oceans

This session is part of the Copernicus Marine week (25th to 29th September): a week-long dedicated event, each day covering different themes, from science to operations, and from R&D to production.

The Copernicus programme is a cornerstone of the European Union’s efforts to monitor the Earth and its many ecosystems. The Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) is committed to delivering state-of-the-art information about the state of the ocean daily, enabling the development of a wide range of blue applications.

15th Aquacultural Insurance & Risk Management Conference

The 15th Conference will follow the format of the preceding 14 successful aquaculture conferences that we have held around the world, over the last 40 years.

The actual conference programmes are never finalised until much nearer the start of each conference. This is to ensure that each program covers the latest, most up to date, most relevant, insurance and risk management issues affecting the industry and its insurers.
