1. Press Conferences Planned

We are currently organizing press conferences on some of the newsworthy scientific research being presented at Ocean Sciences. This list is, of course, subject to change. Press conferences may be dropped or changed in emphasis, and others may be added. The "final" schedule, including a more detailed synopsis of each press conference and list of participants, will be issued in advance of the meeting. Any changes after that date will be announced in the Press Room.

Coastal Impacts of Hurricane Katrina
(Katrina has provided lessons that must be heeded by coastal communities worldwide. How do big storms or tsunamis affect the ocean itself, in terms of physics and biology, and how do they impact coasts, in terms of their winds and storm surges? We present the latest learned from Katrina.)

Enlisting Top Marine Predators to Describe Their Environments
(Whales, seals, and even birds are being equipped with devices not simply to track their own movements, but to report on ocean currents, temperatures, and other parameters.)

The Impact of Oceans on Human Health
(Current research on how oceans affect human health in various ways, positive and negative, e.g., as a source of pathogens as well as pharmaceuticals. Algal blooms, or red tides, can adversely affect human health.)

Deep-Sea Fish Diversity and Ecology
(The ocean's mid-waters, or pelagic zone, and its benthic, or seafloor, zone constitute the largest ecosystems on Earth, but they are po
