Oregon Convention Center, Room C123-124

This town hall will allow Ocean Science Meeting 2018 attendees to ask questions and provide direct input to the OceanObs’19 organizers about the abstract submission process, sponsorship opportunities, and priorities to shape the outcomes of the conference. As part of the decadal series, OceanObs’19 will galvanize the ocean observing community ranging from scientists to end users. The conference will be held September 16-20, 2019 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, HI. OceanObs’19 seeks to improve response to scientific and societal needs, strengthen integration and enhance a fit-for-purpose global ocean observing system, better understand the Earth’s land-sea interactions, bolster atmospheric monitoring and inform climate change adaptation strategies, and promote the sustainable use of ocean resources.
