ICES Symposium on
Set for August 1994
A symposium will take place on August 15-18, 1994 in Plymouth, U.K. on
"Zooplankton Production: Measurement and Role in Global Ecosystems and
Biogeochemical Cycles". The directions set forth at this meeting will
be valuable in guiding future activities of the international GLOBEC and
GOOS (Global Ocean Observing Systems) programs. Topics of discussion
Co-convenors of the planning committee are Mike Reeve, Washington, DC,
and Hein Rune Skjoldal, Bergen, Norway. For further details contact the
local organizers: Roger Harris (Omnet: PML.UK), Plymouth Marine
Laboratory, or John Gamble (Omnet: J.GAMBLE.CPR), Sir Alister Hardy
Foundation for Ocean Science. The address for both is Prospect Place,
Plymouth PL1 3DH, U.K. (Phone: +44 752 222772; Fax +44 752
- Coupling of zooplankton population dynamics and ocean physics to control the magnitude of secondary production, interannual variability of living marine resources, magnitude and fate of primary production, and biogeochemical cycles.
- New technologies for rapid at-sea zooplankton population characterization, including production indices.
- Coupled models of physical and biological dynamics.
