Project Summary

The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Polar Marine Science entitled “Integrating Ocean Physics and Biogeochemistry to Assess Polar Ecosystem Sensitivity to Rapid Change” is scheduled to be held in Ventura, CA, USA in March 2023 ( The GRC will be preceded by a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) which will provide a forum for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers to present and discuss new data, cutting-edge ideas and multidisciplinary approaches with experts in different fields of polar science. The GRC program is composed of an international collection of world-leading, gender-diverse scientists at various career levels that are engaged in research on polar marine sciences. The conference is aimed at highlighting and exchange views about recent advances in the understanding of physical-chemical-biological linkages and feedback processes across the coupled ocean-cryosphere-atmosphere systems of the Arctic and Southern oceans. A preliminary listing of session themes and speakers is is available from the GRC webpage.
