CERF Session 2099: Education partnerships in coastal and marine science

Education partnerships foster participation of traditionally underrepresented groups into higher education and eventually into the STEM workforce.  For example, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Educational Partnership Program with Minority Serving Institutions funds four cooperative science centers that provide research internships, NOAA mentorship, and professional development on coastal, ocean and atmospheric topics.  This session invites contributions describing education partnership programs and initiatives that broaden participation in coastal and marine science; and original contributions of research resulting from education partnership programs in the topics related to climate adaptation and mitigation, weather ready nation, healthy oceans, and resilient coastal communities and economies. The NOAA CCME hosted session will take place Thursday, November 7 from 8:00 - 11:30 am

GoMOSES February 4-7, 2020 New Orleans - Abstract Due September 30, 2019

The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) has been a sponsor and founding member of the Executive Committee of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science (GoMOSES) conference since it began in 2013. Annually, the GoMOSES conference brings together hundreds of oil spill-related experts from academia, state & federal agencies, non-governmental organizations and industry to share the latest oil spill and ecosystem scientific discoveries, innovations, technologies and policies. The GoMOSES conference seeks to link fundamental research on the Gulf ecosystem to practical application and is the premier conference to share Gulf-related research.

AGU Ocean Science February 16-21, 2020 San Diego, CA - Abstract Due September 11, 2019

The Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community. As we approach the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, beginning in 2021, it is increasingly important to gather as a scientific community to raise awareness of the truly global dimension of the ocean, address environmental challenges, and set forth on a path towards a resilient planet.

The Ocean Sciences Meeting 2020 is co-sponsored by AGU, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS). Through the combined power of these three organizations, along with the broader conservation-focused community, this meeting provides attendees the opportunity to bridge disciplines, connect communities, and make lasting partnerships.
