2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting
The oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface and marine environments range from shallow coastal waters to the deep sea. Oceans are fundamentally important to the human race as a source of food, energy, and minerals. However they are under siege from the overharvesting of natural resources, pollution, habitat destruction, invasive species, and climate change. Projected sea level rise and the collapse of commercial fisheries are putting food supplies and coastal areas at risk, potentially leading to economic and social upheaval. It is of the utmost importance to understand the interactions between climate change and the oceans and the impacts on marine ecosystems and human well-being. The 2016 Oceans Sciences Meeting, 21-26 February 2016, New Orleans, will be exploring and addressing the crucial issues and challenges we currently face and the impacts and solutions for the future of our oceans.
Elsevier will be exhibiting at the Ocean Sciences Meeting at booth #112! Check out some of the exciting products we will have on display and download two free articles on Oceanography taken from the Reference Module in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences below.
