The 2012 RARGOM Annual Science Meeting will be a session where Gulf of Maine physical and biological oceanographers will be asked to interpret what they are seeing among the varied signals of physical forcing and lower trophic level response, and challenged to inform the community on how upper trophic level organisms have responded and may react in the future.
