Coastal Ocean Processes

This group provides a focal point for the UK community to discuss and plan future multidisciplinary research into coastal ocean and shelf sea process.

It is our pleasure to announce that the next Challenger Coastal Ocean Processes SIG Meeting will be jointly held between CEFAS and UEA (through the Collaborative Centre for Sustainable Use of the Seas, CCSUS), on 1-2 April 2019. All key information is outlined below. 

Where and When? 
The meeting will take place at UEA, Norwich (NR4 7TJ), from lunchtime Monday 1st April to lunchtime Tuesday 2nd April. Exact timings are TBC, but the aim here will be to allow people to travel to/from the meeting on those days where possible. 

The registration fee will be partially subsidised by both the Challenger Society and CCSUS, and will cover lunch and refreshments over the two days. Final costs will depend on number of attendees, but fees are unlikely to exceed £10. We plan to hold a conference dinner on Monday evening, but as this is optional, costs for this will be handled separately (details to follow).
