Discussion Panel (back to the top)
A critique of what we are doing and suggest improvements

Line-P surveys have been going on now for 50 years. We would like to get opinions on how we are doing, how useful the observations are, what we have done well and what needs improvement. We are inviting a diverse group of knowledgeable people to offer bouquets or brickbats, about Line-P and about the presentations at the workshop. We envision that each panel member will present his/her views in five minutes and respond to questions. This will be followed by an open discussion between the panel and the floor. The discussions will be recorded and used as guidance for the Saturday discussions.

Panel Members:  
Tim Parsons Chair – Emeritus Scientist, Fisheries and Ocean Canada, Sidney, BC, Canada
Ed Harrison NOAA, Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, Seattle, WA, USA
Diana Varela University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, Canada
William Crawford Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Institute of Ocean Sciences, Sidney, BC, Canada
Doug Bancroft Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Ottawa, ON, Canada
Ricardo Letelier Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, USA
   
 

Workshop on the future of the Line-P program: (back to the top)
There will be a one-day workshop on the fourth day of the symposium for those who plan on carrying out research and being active participants in the Line-P program to discuss the future of Line-P.

All of those who plan to do research along Line-P, and any other interested scientists, are invited to take part in a moderated discussion on the Saturday morning which will extend into the afternoon as required to lay out plans for the future of Line-P. Presentations will first be invited in an informal setting; speakers may show a brief PowerPoint presentation with a strict limit of three (3) slides per presentation. This will be followed by a discussion on priorities for future research.

The object is to develop new partnerships and collaborations to guide future endeavours along Line-P. Bring your ideas, slides, imagination etc.
