EOMAR members have participated in the RETI Symposium 2019: Promoting intercultural dialogue and social cohesion in islands, celebrated in Gran Canaria and Tenerife islands during this week.

Satellites have clearly demonstrated the worth in mapping the ocean’s temperature, wave height, and plankton productivity, but we have not learned how to map the ocean’s rates of nitrogen-based productivity, respiratory CO2...

On Saturday 26 January our colleague Igor Fernández Urruzola was awarded the Extraordinary Doctorate Award 2018, thanks to the thesis entitled: Understanding the zooplankton ammonium excretion: From biogeochemical implications to intracellular regulatory mechanisms, directed by May Gómez and Ted...
