Science, Friends, and Great Times—The Spring 2005 International Ocean Research Conference in Paris

Oscar Schofield Catherine Jeandel
First Paragraph

Energetic scientific discussion, a great venue, and spectacular weather best described the International Ocean Research Conference hosted jointly by The Oceanography Society (TOS) and United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission in the beautiful city of Paris this past June. The goal of the meeting was to reflect on how far oceanography has come and to discuss the coming decade of international collaboration in science and education. This was accomplished with a diverse set of morning plenary science sessions followed by afternoon contributed sessions, and a daily poster session. The presentations showed exciting results and also highlighted existing and proposed international research programs.
