Many national and international institutions conduct plankton surveys in Svalbard at regular basis, but so far these activities have not been well coordinated and so far limited data is secured in accessible data bases. This workshop aim to invite plankton researchers and oceanographers annually sampling plankton and hydrography data in Svalbard to discuss Plankton Research in Svalbard. UNIS will host the workshop and Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences and Norwegian Polar Institute will together with UNIS organize the workshop. We aim for mid-June 2015.
