The agenda for the 2014 Alaska Marine Science Symposium is now available. The symposium will take place at the Hotel Captain Cook on January 20 through 24.
The symposium is organized by large marine ecosystem–the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea and Arctic Ocean. Each day will feature talks on one region and will cover a range of topics inlcuding climate, oceanography, lower trophic levels, the benthos, fishes and invertebrates, seabirds, marine mammals, local and traditional knowledge, and socioeconomic research. Don't miss the poster sessions on Monday and Tuesday evenings at the Egan Center.
Since its inception in 2002, NPRB has been a proud sponsor of the Alaska Marine Science Symposium. Scientists from Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond have attended the symposium to communicate research activities in the marine regions off Alaska. Researchers and students in marine science re-connect with old colleagues and meet new ones. Plenary and poster sessions feature a broad spectrum of ocean science. Hear the latest in the fields of climate, oceanography, lower trophic levels, the benthos, fishes and invertebrates, seabirds, marine mammals, local and traditional knowledge, and socioeconomic research. The symposium also features compelling keynote speakers, workshops and special sessions.
