Ocean Research Challenges under Debate at MarCuba 2018
Specialists from the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Gulf of Mexico are discussing on Wednesday in Havana the ocean research challenges, as part of the 11th Congress on Marine Sciences, to be run until Friday, October 19.
In order to advance in a common debate on the conservation of marine species throughout the Gulf of Mexico, the delegates to the event took up the motto 'Today's sciences in the interest of future coasts and seas.' The symposium 'Numerical simulation of weather conditions during extreme events and its effect on sea turtle nesting', by Cuban experts, also provokes an intense scientific interchange today. Those interested in issues related to climate change met in a panel dedicated to the determination of coral reef areas affected by the dispersion of particles at present and for 2100. Other issues under discussion are related to the actions carried out by the Cuban National Aquarium for the protection of marine ecosystems, among which are the technologies applied to maintain living collections, as well as assess structure, abundance and population of the species in their natural environment. Opened on Monday with the aim of preserving marine ecosystems, MarCuba 2018 brings together delegates from more than 12 countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia, as well as the United States.
