Jenna Brown, USGS scientist, chairs the Nearshore Processes session at the Ocean Sciences 2020 conference. The vulnerability of the coast to sea level rise, extreme storms, and anthropogenic influence is a major societal concern. This session included abstracts focused on physical processes occurring in the nearshore region from the subaerial beach to the shelf break. (Public domain.)

USGS representatives presented 8 talks, 10 posters, 4 eLightning presentations, and served as chairs or co-chairs for 4 sessions. The Ocean Sciences Meeting is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community. The Ocean Sciences Meeting was co-sponsored by AGU, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS). USGS representatives attend this meeting annually to promote the work of USGS, exchange research ideas with other scientists, and network with potential partners from around the world.
