The global oceanic basins feature energetic boundary currents that respond to global climate change, influence on climate, interact with coastal ocean, transport heat and water mass, and support a diversity of ecosystems. In our 2010 successful First ‘International Symposium on Boundary Current Dynamics: Its connection with open-ocean and coastal processes and responses to global climate change’ many climatologists and oceanographers congregated in Qingdao, China to synthesize understanding and discuss future research forefronts in boundary currents and coastal processes within the context of global climate changes. Significant progresses and advance have been made in the past three years, and it is time to meet and discuss the progress and advance again.
We are delighted to announce that the Second ‘International Symposium on Boundary Current Dynamics: Its connection with open-ocean, coastal processes, biophysical interactions and responses to global climate change’ will be held in Lijiang, Yunnan, China, 8-9 July, 2013, to be followed by a joint session of CLIVAR Pacific and Indian Ocean panels. A main goal of this meeting is to provide a forum for discussing the recent progress and advance. We would appreciate if you could forward the announcement to your colleagues, young scientists, and students.
