Want to learn more about the science that is occurring in the Bering Sea on both sides of the border? If you are attending the Alaska Marine Science Symposium this year (virtually, and registration is free!) join us on January 27th from 1-3:30pm for the Panel:


Although several bi-lateral forums and agreements have long fostered US-Russian collaboration in science, most Alaskans seldom hear about the outcomes of the research. In recent years, funding challenges and political tensions have made cooperation more difficult but important work is still underway. In this seminar we welcome Russian and American colleagues to share their updates on work and discoveries in the waters of the Bering and Chukchi Seas, including the Kamchatka region. The goal will be to stimulate broader discussions about the need for more collaboration, and identify opportunities to strengthen research and exchange of observations across the border.
