The 2nd International Meeting of Amur-Okhotsk Consortium will be held on November 5 and 6, 2011, in Sapporo, Japan, as a program in Hokkaido University Sustainable Weeks 2011.
The Sea of Okhotsk is known as one of the bountiful oceans in the world with the highest productivity and biodiversity. However, the Sea of Okhotsk has some risk to be affected by the climate change and the rapid development in the Amur River Basin. In order to prevent this problem, a multilateral researchers’ network called “The Amur-Okhotsk Consortium” has been established in November, 2009, not only with Japan and Russia which share the Sea of Okhotsk but also with China and Mongolia which can affect the Sea of Okhotsk through the Amur River. This is the 2nd international meeting of this consortium. The objective of this meeting is to discuss how to preserve the shared heritage of cross-border environment, and how to pass it on to the next generation by academic perspectives with the participation of general public and students. We are looking forward many of your participation!!
