  • Arctic  Conditions
  • Coastal Oil Spill Processes
  • Environmental Management Support Systems
  • Coupled Physical-Biological-Chemical Systems
  • Hydrodynamic Modeling
  • Operational Met-Ocean Modeling
  • Modeling of Coastal Marine Releases
  • Integrated Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessments
  • Environmental Risk and Impact Assessment
  • Environmental Transport and Impacts of Pollutants
  • Dose - Response Modeling
  • Chemical Releases
  • Deepwater and Offshore Issues
  • Contaminated Sediments
  • Ecological and Food Web Models
  • Real Time Monitoring

Abstract deadline: September 21, 2009. E-mail abstracts to: Ms. Kathy Mandsager

Manuscripts will be available at the start of the meeting as part of the registration package.
As with previous IMEMS meetings, manuscripts passing a peer-review process will be published in a scientific journal. Previous meetings have produced publications in Marine Pollution Bulletin, Environmental Modeling and Software, Spill Science and Technology Bulletin, Journal of Marine Systems, and Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science.
