Conference participants
Participants of the ninth Environmental Management of Enclosed Coastal Seas conference.
Global Summit on Coastal Seas conference
The ninth Environmental Management of Enclosed Coastal Seas (EMECS) conference was held in Baltimore, Maryland in late August. IAN helped sponsor the conference, which was attended by over 300 scientists and resource managers from 25 countries, in spite of global financial uncertainty and Hurricane Irene. The conference theme was ‘Managing for results in our coastal seas,’ and both past and present IAN staff presented a variety of topics throughout the conference. At the opening plenary, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley presented his BayStat approach, highlighting the Chesapeake Bay report card produced by EcoCheck, the UMCES/NOAA partnership based in Oxford, Maryland.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
