Invitation to MASTS members to contribute to the Faroe-Shetland Channel/West of Scotland pMPA Case Study

The Dynamics and Properties of Marine Systems Theme within MASTS are funding a Case Study on the Atlantic approaches to the Scottish continental shelf and slope, coordinated by the University of Edinburgh, Marine Scotland Science and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee.  The case study will include the Faroe-Shetland Channel (FSC) region and the West of Scotland possible Marine Protected Area (pMPA). As part of the case study, a workshop of four online sessions will be held to review the existing scientific knowledge, identify research gaps and determine how the MASTS community can drive forward research in both geographic areas. Outputs from these will then be summarised in one or more publications.

Further details are in this document.

The four online workshops will take place from the 17th - 19th November 2020.

To express your interest in attending, please send a short (50 words or less) paragraph with your potential contribution to masts@st-andrews.ac.uk by the 2nd of October 2020.
