Hello Coral-Listers!


The deadline to submit an abstract to the 2015 Gulf
of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference is fast approaching!


The goal of the 2015 conference is to highlight oil spill
and ecosystem science research results with a focus on the five years since the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This year’s conference will seek to answer the
questions “What have we learned, what does it mean and how can it be used?”
with an emphasis on the impact of the research and application of published
research findings.  


The conference sessions were selected to provide
attendees with a broad range of content that highlights current science and
management issues, and new directions. Each session will include scientific
talks; papers not selected for oral presentations will be afforded an
opportunity to participate in the poster session.   


The conference program includes a day-long session that
investigates the full range of effects of the spill on deep-sea benthos and
deep-sea ecosystems, including both hard and soft substrate habitats. Full
descriptions of all sessions can be found at https://custom.cvent.com/D31C0AA42FDF42E9918B4DC41EF12A96/files/92e9fb78e1394c6a907f7c8774014efd.pdf.
