The Mid-Atlantic Committee on the Ocean (MACO) invited high school, undergraduate and graduate students, and early career professionals to present their research posters at a virtual poster session held during the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Forum on May 5, 2022. Poster abstracts were welcome on a variety of topics relevant to ocean science, policy and socioeconomics in the Mid-Atlantic region. MACO thanks the Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS) for its work organizing this event.
