1. About Ocean Sciences Meeting
Four major ocean science research organizations are combining to organize the best Ocean Sciences Meeting ever. The American Geophysical Union (AGU), the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), The Oceanography Society (TOS), and the Estuarine Research Foundation (ERF) are combining their strengths to present the latest research into all aspects of Earth's least known area: its oceans.
The meeting comprises 3,476 oral and poster presentations in more than 110 sessions over five days. It will be held in the beautiful, well equipped Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu. We are in the process of organizing a series of press conferences, to bring some of the most important new discoveries to reporters covering the meeting. These will be described in subsequent advisories.

Six hotels are offering rooms to Meeting attendees at prices ranging from $87 to $189 per night, plus tax. The deadline for booking at these rates is 20 January 2006, but some hotels sell out sooner.
