The effects of Global climate change have been reached to an alarming level especially on the physical and chemical oceanography and marine resources. According to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the global mean surface air temperature increased by 0.74 oC, while the global mean sea surface temperature rose by 0.67 oC over the last century. According to that report, the World would be 3.3 0C warmer by the end of the next century, with a range of uncertainty of 2.2 to 4.9 oC. Therefore, awareness should be grown rapidly in the society on how marine resources will minimize and adapt with marine environment which is changing rapidly due to climate change.
This conference will provide a platform to increase awareness, exchange knowledge, ideas and recent research findings between specialists about adaptation and minimization strategies of climate change effects through sustainable management of marine resources. This is a great opportunity for Oceanographer, Marine Ecologist, Marine Biologist, Aquaculture and Fisheries Scientists and Government and Non- Government Organizations to present, discuss, and find common ground and solutions for situations facing all segments of the marine resources.
