This grant supported a successful international multidisciplinary scientific meeting addressing the topic Coastal and Marginal Seas, hosted by The Oceanography Society and UNESCOs Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission in Paris, June 1-4, 1998. The meeting attendance was 237 total with participating scientists from 33 countries. 160 abstracts were accepted for presentation as either as a plenary talk or a poster. The topic was covered in depth from small scale processes to regional scale processes to a global perspective. Partial reimbursement of travel expenses of invited speakers was also made possible through this grant. Without such support, attracting leaders in the field would have been severely restricted. Publication of a special issue of Oceanography magazine containing the submitted abstracts was also supported by the grant. Publication of the abstracts in this vehicle makes them citable references which is extremely important to authors and increases their one-term value to the scientific community. This meeting and the publication of the abstracts facilitated communication and exchanges among scientists from the global ocean sciences community.
