Benefits of Integrated Research—Examples from the Bering Sea Project

Tags: Bering Sea Project

As the Bering Sea Project comes to a close, participants are busy publishing journal articles and presenting at various meetings including the 2014 Alaska Marine Science Symposium and the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting. In addition to individual project findings, participants are examining potential synthesis of individual research projects to inform the larger ecosystem hypotheses. At the spring 2014 North Pacific Reserach Board meeting, Mike Sigler, a member of the Bering Sea Project's science advisory board, gave a presentation that highlighted the benefits of an integrated research program and gave examples of the synthesis that was a direct result of the integration.
