The 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting will be held February 16-21, 2020 in San Diego, CA. OSM convenes every two years and provides a venue for international scientists, students, government representatives and industry practitioners to exchange information via oral presentations and poster sessions. Topics covered include all aspects of oceanography, especially multidisciplinary topics, as well as presentations that reflect new and emerging research on the global ocean and society, including science education, outreach and public policy. The OSM originated in 1982 as a joint effort between the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO). In 2004 The Oceanography Society (TOS) joined as a regular co-sponsor.
