Abstract submission deadline
The deadline for abstract submission for the 2010 Ocean Sciences  
Meeting -- 15 October -- is fast approaching!
This is a reminder to submit your relevant abstract to the session  
"Recent Technological Advances for Studying the Ecology of Top Marine  
Predators" (BO23).  In addition to contributed presentations, this  
year we will have three invited presentations covering exciting  
technological advances in the study of marine top predators.  Please  
feel free to forward this email and encourage your colleagues and  
associates to attend.

The 2010 Ocean Sciences Meeting
The upcoming Ocean Sciences Meeting will be held in Portland, Oregon,  
between 22 and 26 February 2010.  The Ocean Sciences meeting, the  
world's largest gathering of ocean scientists, is jointly sponsored by  
the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), The  
Oceanography Society (TOS), and the American Geophysical Union (AGU).

Scientific Session "BO23: Recent Technological Advances for Studying  
the Ecology of Top Marine Predators"
Description: The use of sophisticated electronic devices and other  
advanced technologies for the study of marine top predator ecology is  
becoming routine, resulting in new insights into the physical and  
biological processes that influence predator behavior and  
distribution. This session seeks to bring together biologists,  
oceanographers, and engineers who are involved in the development and  
application of cutting-edge instrumentation or novel methods to study  
the ecology of predatory fishes, marine turtles, seabirds, pinnipeds,  
and cetaceans. Presentations on the use of technologies such as  
electronic tagging, hydroacoustics, bioacoustics, autonomous or  
remotely operated vehicles, and remote sensing are welcome.   
Contributions from outstanding students are particularly encouraged.   
This session is co-sponsored by AGU's Biological Oceanography and  
Marine Technology Sections.

Conveners: Daniel Palacios, Mark Baumgartner and Steven Bograd
