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).
