The 2010 ESSAS Annual Science Meeting (ASM) was convened in Reykjavik, Iceland (30/31 August and 1 September 2010), and hosted by the Marine Research Institute (MRI) of Iceland. The main goal of the ESSAS project is to compare, quantify and predict the impact of climate variability on the productivity and sustainability of Sub-Arctic marine ecosystems. The ASM was opened with welcoming remarks from Ken Drinkwater (ESSAS Co-Chair, Norway) and Johann Sigurjonsson (Director MRI, Ice-land). Comments on local arrangements and practical information were provided by Ólafur S Astthorsson (Deputy Director MRI and chair of the local organizing commit-tee). Fifty-one scientists from five countries participated. The meeting was divided into five half-day sessions to present ongoing research within the ESSAS areas as well as that conducted by ESSAS working groups (WGs).
