Ocean Outlook

Ocean Outlook

The pressures on the oceans of the world are increasing and at the same time climate models predict drastic changes in their composition and capacity with respect to biomass production, currents, temperature, salinity, chemistry, ice cover and so forth. In-depth knowledge about the oceans will be in high demand in the years to come in order to secure informed decision-making and best manage and safeguard marine resources and environments. This requires a firm grasp of the marine systems, their baseline conditions, the changes they are currently undergoing as well as those they will face in the time to come.

The first Ocean Outlook meeting (OO15) was held in Bergen over two days. The second meeting was in Woods Hole (OO16) with a large group from Norway attending. This year's Ocean Outlook meeting (OO17) is again held in Bergen with the heading 'Seeing under water'. I
