The world will have an additional 2 billion people to feed over the next 30 years. Today the ocean makes a significant contribution to food security and nutrition, and it holds the potential to play an even bigger role in the global food system.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the main 8th International Symposium on Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces has been postponed to 17-22 May 2022. To maintain an active community, a free online "bite-size" event will be organised on 19 May 2021.
The online event will feature:
Following the publication of the Communicating MSP handbook, this webinar hosted by the European MSP Platform and IOC UNESCO MSP Global will look in more detail at three chapters and three projects highlighted in the guide.
The Eighth session of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) Plenary will be held online from 14-24 June 2021.
It will be preceded by online regional consultations and stakeholder day(s) (information on the time and date of these events will follow in due course).
Further information on the preparatory process as well as information on the registration process, meeting documentation and the platform that will be used for the online meeting will be shared in due course.
This virtual session will explore opportunities and challenges and discuss best practices to deliver co-designed, solution-oriented research that will lead to transformative Decade Actions with long-lasting benefits to the ocean and society.
The session will be organised in two parts:
• Part 1 - What is co-designed, solution-oriented research in the context of the Ocean Decade?
• Part 2 – How can we foster co-design co-production and co-delivery in ocean research during the Ocean Decade?
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
GEOTRACES will host a number of sessions at Goldschmidt 2019, the foremost international conference on geochemistry and related subjects. GEOTRACES are currently involved in 8 sessions relating to ocean biogeochemistry which will be held at the event. Please follow the link above for a full list of these sessions.
A conference session entitled "Ocean biogeochemistry and climate: recent advance and novel approaches to synthesis and predictions" will be held at the upcoming EGU general assembly 2019 to be held in Vienna, Austria, 7–12 April 2019.
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”.
The International Meeting on Marine Research 2018 (IMMR’18) will take place in Peniche, Portugal, from the 5-6 July 2018. IMMR’18 is an international congress planned to communicate novel scientific knowledge on marine resources and research towards the sustainability of our planet.
