11-13 February, Tromsø
The next annual meeting of the Norwegian Association of Marine Scientists will take place in February. This time we meet in Tromsø, and the focus of the meeting will be “coasts”. Norway has a particularly long coastline, with fjords and distinct ecosystems. The majority of people in Norway live at or near the coast. The coastal areas play an important for Norwegian economy, with food production, transportation, and industry. And we know surprisingly little about the coastal ecosystems and the changes that unfold there, in part because monitoring timeseries are few and scattered compared to offshore survey efforts. The Norwegian Association of Marine Scientists therefore hopes to spread enthusiasm and interest for coastal research, while at the same time welcoming presentations about all other types of ocean science, as usual.
