BASIN Specific Support Action (SSA)
Support for BASIN to hold three meetings in 2007-2008 was provided by the US NSF and the EU 6th Framework SpecificSupport Action (SSA) (Sub-Priority The scale of influence of global change and the added value of coordinating the scientific activities of the EU and North American countries to assess, predict, and mitigate the effects on marine ecosystems of the North Atlantic and their services is the justification for the development of the SSA. These workshops built on the actions identified in the 2005 BASIN Workshop in Reykjavik jointly funded by NSF and EUR-OCEANS.
