Today's date is Thursday, December 12, 2019
Pilbara Coastal and Marine Science Symposium (PCMSS) : A multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary day-long symposium on the Pilbara Coast and nearshore marine regions Other events...
The Pilbara Coast, between Exmouth Gulf and the DeGrey Delta, is the most arid coast in Australia, and one of only several arid coasts around the world but the most diverse arid coast globally. Bordering a mineral-rich geological province, the Pilbara Coast has non-renewable resources, and has been utilised for industry e.g., ports for export of iron ore and other minerals, extraction and liquefaction of natural gas, and solar salt production. Additionally, in this geologically and biologically diverse region, there is a rich Indigenous history, with archaeological heritage manifest as shell middens and as rock art. Facilitated by the Geological Society of Australia and partners, brings together, for discussion and exchange of information and ideas, people from different scientific disciplines, and walks of life, bridging the extremes of the utilisation of the coast – from industrialisation, geo and bio conservation, to cultural heritage. This symposium follows the AMSA Conference, both being held in Fremantle. Registration for PCMSS can be made online https://forms.gle/rasELEKSEb2mAjRo6 or from the AMSA website http://amsa19.amsa.asn.au/ Abstracts (250 words) can be emailed to pcmss@iinet.net.au
