The Study Group on Climate related Benthic processes in the North Sea (SGCBNS) was initiated by the ICES Benthos Ecology Working Group (BEWG) as a follow up initiative of the former North Sea Benthos Surveys (NSBS 1986; NSBP 2000). The aim was to discuss and facilitate future research activities concerning benthic ecosystem processes related to climate change and to establish a network of benthic long-term series. This year the chairs of SG organised a workshop in February at the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK. The aim of this workshop was to initiate work on the pro-posed case study 1 (Assessing fine-scale bioturbation). Subsequently, the SG also conducted their annual meeting as a WebEx conference on 24–27 October 2011 to fa-cilitate the participation of members unable to travel.
