The Monsters of Climate Science
A Workshop on Sunday, August 19 12:30-3:30PM
Atlantic City Convention Center Room 320
The 1980s “Monsters of Rock” tour brought together the best heavy metal bands in the world to play together. The Monsters of Climate Science workshop will bring together top scientists from around the country for an afternoon of mayhem, mirth, and majorly informative presentations on different aspects of climate change and the impacts on fisheries. This event, which is organized by the AFS Estuaries and Marine Fisheries Sections, and the American Institute of Fishery Research Biologists will benefit student travel awards for the AFS Annual Meeting. Laser lights, heavy metal, great talks, and a great cause–what’s not to like?
Registration is $40 for non-students and $20 for students. You can register via the AFS annual meeting registration page, or walk ups are welcome.
