In October 2021, we celebrated our eleventh annual conference online! This cross-disciplinary online meeting brought together members of the global marine science community, with the aim of promoting and communicating research excellence and forging new scientific collaborations.
This online event saw expert plenary speakers and contributed talks and e-posters outlining the latest research and management practices that address key topics related to marine science and management in the face of global climate change.
Plenary speakers were:
David Pratt & Drew Milne (Marine Scotland) & Prof Tavis Potts (University of Aberdeen) – Tackling climate change with offshore renewables: ambitions in Scotland
Sessions (abstracts linked)
Plus, we held two lunchtime MASTS ASM Webinars on Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity sessions, co-ordinated by the Challenger Society.
5th: This session consisted of a panel discussion about experiences in marine science. Speakers included Madeline Anderson (UKPN), Huw Griffiths (BAS), Donna Frater (NERC), Renuka Badhe (Women in Polar Science).
6th: Chaired by Ellen Johannesen from the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), the second session featured short talks about individual researchers’ case studies and best practice.
Sea lice dispersal modelling and population assessment. Topic: Where are the gaps in the current research and monitoring?
The annual Society for Underwater Technology’s workshop – Decommissioning, Spatial Custodianship and Climate Emergency – How do we achieve joined-up policies?
IMarEST will kindly provided prizes for the best student talk and e-poster and the runner-ups.
The MASTS Oil and Gas Environment research forum ran a special e-poster session. E-posters were judged by a panel of industry experts from SubseaUK, Oil and Gas UK and Decom North Sea.
Best Oil and Gas poster
