[Coral-List] ICRS Symposium on Coral Reefs and Global Changes

As part of Theme 2, Environmental Factors Controlling Coral Reef 
Formation in Space and Time, a mini symposium series is planned on Coral 
Reefs and Global Changes.  This series will consist of six mini-symposia 
discussing a wide range of global change aspects, focusing on sea level, 
paleoclimatology, carbon, physical monitoring, community responses, and 
societal implications.  A focused panel discussion of important findings 
will then follow in the "Special Session" time.

On behalf of the many organizers of these sessions, I encourage you to 
submit abstracts to this exciting series that has great relevance to 
problems facing reefs today.
