BIOS Has Strong Representation at the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting

From February 23-28, nearly 5,600 ocean scientists, engineers, students, educators, and policy makers gathered in Honolulu for the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting. This biennial meeting, co-sponsored by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), The Oceanographic Society (TOS), and the American Geophysical Union (AGU), is an important venue for scientific exchange across broad marine science disciplines. With 141 scientific, educational, and policy sessions, the conference covered topics as wide-ranging as phytoplankton biogeography, ocean science workforce development, marine renewable energy, microbial oceanography in the deep sea, infectious marine diseases, and climate change.

BIOS had a strong presence at the international meeting, with the following in attendance and giving either poster or oral presentations:

  • Faculty members: Eric Hochberg and Nick Bates
  • Adjunct faculty: Ruth Curry and Mike Lomas
  • BIOS staff: Steven Bell, Matt Enright, Rebecca Garley, Joanna Jones, Sam Monk, and Violetta Paba
  • Recent BIOS NSF-Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program students: Stacy Peltier and Kelly Speare
  • Former BIOS Interns: Sean McNally
  • Former BIOS Center of Excellence in Observational Oceanography (CofE) students: Maria Leal-Acosta, Fernanda Giannini and Gayatri Dudeja
  • BIOS-Princeton University Ph.D. Program graduate: Sarah Fawcett
  • Recent Canadian Associates of BIOS (CaBIOS) intern: Veronique Oldham
