Ocean Sciences Meeting 2020 - San Diego, California

Starts:  Feb 16, 2020 6:34 PM (PT)
Ends:  Feb 21, 2020 6:34 PM (PT)
The Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community. As we approach the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, beginning in 2021, it is increasingly important to gather as a scientific community to raise awareness of the truly global dimension of the ocean, address environmental challenges, and set forth on a path towards a resilient planet.

The Ocean Sciences Meeting 2020 is co-sponsored by AGU, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS). Through the combined power of these three organizations, along with the broader conservation-focused community, this meeting provides attendees the opportunity to bridge disciplines, connect communities, and make lasting partnerships.

Check out Session: SI003 - Ocean and Marine Sustainability: Preparedness for Climate and Ocean Extreme through Societal Participation.

Ocean, marine and coastal systems are important for human livelihoods. The Sustainable Development Goal 14 - the sustainable use and development of the world's oceans - focuses on ocean and marine sustainability. This session deals with challenges and opportunities in ocean and marine sustainability. The session focuses on multidisciplinary issues related to climate and weather extremes and its impacts on ocean, marine and coastal biodiversity. We invite presentations on ocean and marine pollution, societal participation for ocean and marine sustainability, and risk and resilience in ocean, marine and coastal areas. The session also deals with the issues related to ocean change, acidification and hypoxia and social and ocean science interactions. The session invites presentations on ocean sustainability including ocean productivity, marine policies, aquaculture and fisheries resource management, information and communication science for ocean sustainability, ocean observation and data management, coastal and marine tourism, fish drought and its societal impacts and social, economic and policy issues relevant to coastal, marine and ocean resources estrangement and development.

Abstract submissions close on 11 September 2019.
