Antarctic Sea Ice Variability in the Southern Ocean-Climate System: Proceedings of a Workshop (2017)

The sea ice surrounding Antarctica has increased in extent and concentration from the late 1970s, when satellite-based measurements began, until 2015. Although this increasing trend is modest, it is surprising given the overall warming of the global climate and the region. Indeed, climate models, which incorporate our best understanding of the processes affecting the region, generally simulate a decrease in sea ice. Moreover, sea ice in th... More >>

Frontiers in Decadal Climate Variability: Proceedings of a Workshop (2016)

A number of studies indicate an apparent slowdown in the overall rise in global average surface temperature between roughly 1998 and 2014. Most models did not predict such a slowdown--a fact that stimulated a lot of new research on variability of Earth's climate system. At a September 2015 workshop, leading scientists gathered to discuss current understanding of climate variability on decadal timescales (10 to 30 years) and whether and ho... More >>

Oceanography in 2025: Proceedings of a Workshop (2009)

What research and technology needs, trends, and barriers might affect oceanography in 2025? Scientists, engineers, and technologists participated in a January 2009 workshop, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, to include the perspective of the research community for U.S. Navy and Marine strategies for the 2025 timeframe. Physical processes of the ocean, including drivers of temperature, salinity, and currents, were emphasized. Specifi... More >>

Recruiting Fishery Scientists: Workshop on Stock Assessment and Social Science Careers (2000)

The National Marine Fisheries Service employs many fishery scientists with diverse skills. The agency finds that the supply of fishery biologists is adequate to meet most of its needs. However, increasing demands on the agency to understand fish populations and the social and economic conditions in fishing communities have created a need for additional experts in the fields of fisheries stock assessment and social sciences. This report provide... More >>

Opportunities for Environmental Applications of Marine Biotechnology: Proceedings of the October 5-6, 1999 Workshop (2000)

The overall goals of the workshop were to examine opportunities for marine biotechnology, to discuss where things stood in the field of environmental marine biotechnology, to envision the field in the future, and to discuss any impediments that might be encountered along the way. Speaker summaries examine the current state of knowledge for each topic and highlighted the research needs in each area. This report also highlights the most recen... More >>
