Advances in Marine Biogeochemistry (AMBIO)

AMBIO is a Special Interest Group of the Challenger Society for Marine Science. It provides a forum for knowledge exchange and strategic research planning, with a strong commitment to the development of early career scientists. As such it has become a nexus for marine biogeochemical interests from across the UK’s university, private and publically funded research centres, and marine technology and policy sectors.


AMBIO holds a biennial meeting at rolling locations across the UK and welcomes up to 100 delegates over 3 days from home and abroad. It recognises and awards excellence in research and presentation among ECRs, and aims to foster new links between individuals and disciplines that may advance the field of marine biogeochemistry. Our next meeting, AMBIO IX, is being planned for autumn 2019. Stay tuned for further details.
