The Thalassic Society

and the

Department of Oceanography present the

3rd Oceanography Symposium


This symposium was held the 13th November 2008. It consisted on 2 sessions: talk and poster

Objectives of the Meeting

The main objective of organizing this meeting is to give a chance to the student to be in a conference like environment, present their actual academic work in a more formal way as well as mixing up the different field of Oceanography: chemistry, biology and physical.
