Purpose of the conference

Time-series analysis is the future for marine science to understand ocean processes and their dynamics. It not only helps identify the phenomenon represented by sequences of observations, but also helps forecast events by feeding models. For instance, areas of accelerated climate change like the Arctic or of high potential natural hazards like Istanbul are of high interest.

The purpose of this conference is to integrate the scientific community and research activities across fields in marine science (physical oceanography, marine chemistry, marine biology, ecology and geology) to share the rapidly developing knowledge and to enhance cross discipline interactions and collaborations.

This conference will be the first of a series of conferences dealing with marine science time-series. It will focus on analysis and interpretation of time-series acquired from fixed platforms, repeat sections and modelling, ontime scales ranging from months to decades in sub-sea environments.

Starting by a2-day training course and followed by a 3-day scientific conference, this event promotes transfer of knowledge between researchers from several fields.Both training courses and conference presentations are mainly based on application examples and case studies from field experiments.

The conference is based on the "Gordon conference format", with all activities taking place on the conference site, including meals and accommodation, thus allowing ample time for informal discussions andbrain-storming opportunities.


Scientific themes of the conference 

1) "Low" to "High" frequency signals in oceanography

2) Geosciences and seismic monitoring: HF and BF signal

3) Passive and active acoustical ecology

4) Marine ecology from coastal to deep-sea ecosystems

5) Applications for industry
