Conference Description
The Gordon Research Conference series on Polar Marine Science provides an international forum for presentation and discussion of frontier research on the polar oceans. Each conference consists of a week of intense discussion and examination of the most advanced aspects of polar ocean research, allowing information and idea dissemination not readily achievable through the usual communication channels such as publications and presentations at large scientific meetings. The intent of this conference is to approach topics within the context of a long-term, integrated system. The focus is on the interaction between physical, chemical, biological processes at various scales within high latitude oceanic systems. This focus benefits greatly from an integration of different topical issues within each session. It also helps to avoid the balkanization into "physical" and "biological" segments at the expense of the desired interaction that so often happens at oceanographic meetings. Another important aspect of this conference is a bilateral treatment of the northern and southern high latitude oceans. The Arctic and the Antarctic are frequently treated in separate sessions at meetings. However, many of the processes, interactions and impacts with which we are concerned are common to both polar regions. A bipolar focus helps lead us to new insights into these processes.

A Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is held in conjunction with this Conference. Click here for more information about the associated GRS.
