The Physical Oceanography Dissertation Symposia provide recent graduates, or soon to graduate, PhD-level physical oceanographers with an opportunity to present their dissertation research in front of their professional peers and to forge professional relationships that will facilitate their future research and academic careers.
The PODS VII symposium for physical oceanographers with recent PhDs was held at the Kaua‘i Marriott in Lihue, Kaua‘i from 7–11 October 2012. This symposium was jointly sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research, and coordinated by the University of Hawaii’s Conference Center.
