CLIVAR-relevant sessions at 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting

Ocean sciences logo

Held February 11-16, the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting will bring together ocean researchers and collaborators in Portland, Oregon. In preparation for the meeting, the US CLIVAR Project Office has compiled a condensed list of sessions that are relevant to the community and organized by Panels, Working Groups, and community members. The list of sessions is not intended to be exhaustive but to help digest the collection of the hundreds of sessions and events. 

Abstracts are due September 6
