THEMES OF THE SYMPOSIUM:
- Theme1: Regime shifts, especially, examination
of the ocean and ecosystem responses to known strong, infrequent changes
in the North Pacific, such as those that occurred in 1977, 1989, and
- Theme2: Ecosystem productivity and structural responses
to physical forcing, with an emphasis on shorter than inter-decadal
time-scales-interannual (El Niño-La Niña), seasonal and event scales;
- Theme3: Pan-Pacific comparisons, with an emphasis
on comparisons of similar species or processes from multiple coastal
ecosystems and of open ocean-coastal linkages and climate connections.
