The 4th biennial Oceans of Knowledge conference organised by the IMarEST Operational Oceanography Special Interest Group.
A two-day conference addressing three key themes:
Climate change and sustainable use of the ocean and ocean resources
The role of the ocean in natural and engineered climate mitigation
Rising sea levels and coastal vulnerability
Scene-setting keynotes will highlight current scientific understanding of the ocean-related aspects of climate change. Policy responses at a national and international level will be placed into the context of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Oceans of Knowledge 2021 will provide an important opportunity to meet and network with delegates from government, academia and industry, representing multiple disciplines and sectors concerned with understanding, mitigating and adapting to a changing climate.
Outputs from the conference will be used to generate a summary report drawing together the three themes, informing follow-on workshops and supporting peer-reviewed publications.
