1. About the 2008 Ocean Sciences Meeting

This years meeting will offer a wealth of new science regarding the planets oceans and Earths water wherever it is found, from mountain peaks to deep ocean trenches.

As many as 4,000 scientists from around the world are expected to attend the meeting, where they will present and discuss the latest findings in ocean acidification, the causes and consequences of sea-ice loss, Everglades restoration impacts, marine ecology, river-ocean interactions and many other fields.

We are in the process of organizing a series of press conferences to bring some of the most important new discoveries to reporters who cover the meeting. These will be described in subsequent advisories.

Approximately 1,500 oral sessions and more than 1,600 poster presentations are planned for Monday, 3 March to Friday, 7 March 2008 at the Orange County Convention Center (West Building) in Orlando, Florida. Poster presentations will take place Monday-Thursday evenings to avoid overlap with oral sessions.

Four scientific organizations sponsor the 2008 meeting: The American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Estuarine Research Federation (ERF), and The Oceanography Society (TOS). This year, ASLO has the lead role in organizing the meeting.
