1995 IAPSO Activities

1995 IAPSO General Assembly

The General Assembly of IAPSO held in Honolulu, Hawaii in August 1995 was the largest and involved the greatest number of countries in the history of IAPSO. A substantial effort, spanning three years of preparations had been made to include all known working oceanographers in the world in the IAPSO mailing list and to implement an up-to-date, PC based data base.

The Honolulu General Assembly included 13 symposia and two workshops. The Symposia were:

  • Large-Scale Ocean Circulation
  • Decadal and Interdecadal Variations in the Ocean (Co-sponsored by the IOC)
  • Circulation of Marginal Seas and Semi-Enclosed Seas
  • Coastal Ocean (A): Interaction with the Open Ocean
  • Coastal Ocean (B): Interaction with the Adjacent Land
  • Carbon Dioxide in the Oceans
  • Air-Sea-Ice Interactions and High-Latitude Ocean Processes
  • Dynamics of the Open Ocean from New Satellites (Co-sponsored by the IAG)
  • Marine Dispersion
  • Spatial Structure of Short Ocean Waves
  • Physical, Chemical, & Geological Oceanography; Poster/Precis
  • Ocean-Atmosphere Coupling: TOGA/COARE (Co-sponsored by IAMAS and IAHS)
  • Internal Waves & Small-Scale Turbulence in the Oceans, Lakes & Atmosphere (Co-sponsored by IAMAS)
