P01 - General topics in oceanography 

Convenor: Eugene Morozov
Co-Convenors: Edmo Campos, Stefano Pierini

The symposium welcomes presentations of new results of research in physical and chemical oceanography concerning large-scale circulation and eddies, water masses and their interaction, coastal currents, frontal zones and fronts, coastal upwellings and filaments, as well as SST, SSS and sea level variations, wind waves and storm surges, internal waves and tides, and other phenomena in different regions of the ocean, including inland seas.

The topics of the sessions also include key problems in ocean colour, oil pollution, carbon cycle, acidification, and various extremes in the sea. Applications of remote sensing, numerical modelling, and marine chemistry will be discussed. The symposium will cover topics of ocean physics and chemistry not addressed by other symposia.
