First International CEOS Meeting
The Climate and Eastern Ocean Systems (CEOS) program will hold its first
international meeting in Monterey, California on 6-8 September 1994.
The meeting is being sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) and the Institut Francais de Recherche
Scientifique pour le Developpement en Cooperation (ORSTOM). CEOS is a
cooperative international research effort studying the potential effects
of climate change on the living resources of the highly productive
eastern ocean upwelling ecosystems and on the ecological and economic
issues directly associated with such effects. One goal of the program
is to attempt to separate local short-term changes in the resources or
dynamics of these upwelling systems from long-term, climatic global
changes. It was planned from the inception of CEOS to have meetings,
such as the one planned for Monterey, to provide a forum for the
exchange of results and ideas. Contacts for additional information are
the organizers, Roy Mendelssohn and Philippe Cury, both at PFEG, P.O.
Box 831, Monterey, CA; Phone: 408-656-3311; Fax: 408-656-3319).
