Final U.S. GLOBEC Pan-Regional Synthesis Workshop

13 April - 15 April 2010
NCAR Center Green Facility (CG1)
Boulder, Colorado

The U.S. GLOBEC National Office announces that its Final Pan-Regional Synthesis Workshop will be held in Boulder Colorado at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Center Green Campus. Rooms will be availble (by arrangement) on the afternoon of Monday, April 12 for pre-workshop meetings (RSVP). The Workshop will begin at 8:30am on Tuesday, April 13, and will conclude by 12:30pm on Thursday, April 15.

U.S. GLOBEC (GLOBal ocean ECosystems dynamics) is a research program organized by oceanographers and fisheries scientists to address the question of how climate variability including global climate change may affect the structure and function of marine ecosystems. U.S. GLOBEC has comprised three regional programs -- Northwest Atlantic/Georges Bank, Northeast Pacific, and Southern Ocean -- and a series of technology and modeling development projects. A brief introduction to U.S. GLOBEC -- including links to its publications and available datasets -- may be found here.

The focus of the U.S. GLOBEC program is now on comparing and contrasting the results from the different regions in the prior phases of U.S. GLOBEC, and on extending these results with comparisons to, or tests within, other comparable ecosystems.

Inquiries concerning the Workshop may be directed to the Chair of the U.S. GLOBEC Standing Committee for Synthesis, Dr. Dale Haidvogel (
