CLIVAR town hall & sessions at 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting

Ocean sciences logo

At the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting, International and US CLIVAR will host a town hall on Thursday, February 15 at 12:45 pm on “CLIVAR’s Course: Accomplishments and Future Science Priorities.” Additional sessions relevant for the community have also been compiled. 

The Ocean Science Meeting sessions are listed in the following categories: US CLIVAR-sponsored; Town Halls, Events, and Workshops; Air-Sea Interactions and Upper Ocean Processes; Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems; Observing and Modeling; Polar Regions; and Other. This list of sessions is not intended to be exhaustive but to help the community digest the collection of the hundreds of sessions and events. Also, the sessions in this list often have multiple time slots and posters. If you have a relevant session that you want to be included in this list, please email
