Dear MEAM subscribers,
A number of you have asked for a PDF (Portable Document Format) version of MEAM for downloading and printing. Although we are no longer able to support the fully formatted eight-page version, a PDF version of each issue of MEAM is still available. The link to this PDF will be at the bottom of every monthly e-mail. This month’s PDF can be downloaded at https://meam.openchannels.org/printpdf/meam/issue/december-2015-january-2016-93.
And a new e-mail discussion group - the Ocean Planning Community listserv – has been launched for ocean planners worldwide. It will help practitioners share experience and good practices with one another: what worked, what didn't, what you have learned. The listserv is hosted by OpenChannels.org and co-produced by the University of Rhode Island, The Nature Conservancy, TNC Canada, Sound Seas, and MARE. You can subscribe at https://www.openchannels.org/community/ocean-planning-community and post to the list at community [at] list.openchannels.org once you are subscribed.
Finally, we wanted to let you know that MEAM will do a combined December-January issue every year, so the next issue will hit your inboxes in early February 2016.
Until then, a very joyous new year to everyone!
