Session 2
New observations and understanding of eastern and western Bering Sea ecosystems


Rodger Harvey (USA)
Oleg N. Katugin (Russia)
Sang Heon Lee (Korea)
Mike Sigler (USA)

Invited Speakers:

Gennady Khen (Russia) - presents on May 23, Plenary Session
Franz J. Mueter (USA)
Phyllis Stabeno (USA) - presents on May 23, Plenary Session

This session is meant to showcase the recent major efforts in the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study (BEST) and the Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BSIERP), as well as the compendium of new information provided in the most recent PICES North Pacific Ecosystem Status Report and studies that have been carried out in the Bering Sea by Russia, Korea, Japan and China. These papers will provide an opportunity to gain an overall perspective of the relative importance of various forcing mechanisms in driving marine ecosystem dynamics.
