IOCAG members attend UNESCO meeting in Cabo Verde

Last week, IOCAG members J. Magdalena Santana Casiano and director, Alonso Hernández Guerra took part in a meeting organised by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO and its associates in Cabo Verde. The meeting was held with the aim of fomenting increased awareness among the countries of North East Africa regarding the impact of climate change on the present marine ecosystem of the Canary islands and thus establish a sustainable use of marine resources. As such, the scientists taking part discussed their research on the physical, biochemical and ecological processes of the Canary Current Eastern Boundary.
