        The CERC.OCEAN Lab got a head start to celebrate the World Ocean Day (June 8) by participating in the CMOS 2023 Congress in St John’s, Newfoundland, from May 28 to June 1. It was an excellent week with full of learning new science, seeing old friends, and fostering new connections.

        Our group was present in force, participating with a diverse lineup of oral presentations and posters. Post-doctoral fellow Jannes Koelling was awarded with the CMOS Roger Daley Post-Doctoral Publication Award for his published article “Oxygen export to the deep ocean following Labrador Sea Water Formation”, and MSc student Teala Chambers won 3rd place Poster Prize for her poster presentation “Exploring the vertical distribution of redox sensitive elements in a coastal anoxic basin (Whycocomagh Bay, Cape Breton).” Notably, Kitty Kam was chosen as an ECOP representative for ECOP Canada, and helped to facilitate discussion about “An Accessible Ocean” as one of the UN Ocean Decade outcomes in the ORCA 2023 meeting that happened after CMOS Congress.

        Communicating our research and learning from other ocean professionals is a valuable experience for all of us. We are grateful to have been able to celebrate the start of ocean week in this way and encourage everyone to celebrate this special day by connecting and exploring new knowledges about the ocean!
