The 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting showcased the reach and extent of research sponsored by NCCOS, including coral reefs, harmful algal blooms, hypoxia, applying research to management solutions, and integrated ecosystem assessments. NCCOS staff and sponsored research scientists gave over 25 oral and poster presentations and co-chaired a special session on mapping, monitoring, and managing mesophotic (mid-depth) coral reefs.

The biennial meeting is the largest international assembly of scientists, engineers, students, educators, and policy makers, who gather to share and discuss new scientific findings, research applications, education, and policy about the oceans. Over 5,000 researchers were expected to present at this year’s meeting, held in Hawaii on February 23 -28.
