Scientists share their results with each other at scientific conferences. Your teacher may have you, or your team, share your findings with your classmates at your very own scientific conference. Each team member will present a section of your scientific report at the conference.

For example, Dr. Mearns has shared the results and conclusions of his studies in Prince William Sound at several conferences, including the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Symposium, which was hosted by the American Fisheries Society in Anchorage, Alaska in 1993. He was an author on three chapters in the proceedings published on the symposium. Here is the citation for one of his chapters:

Mearns, A.J. 1996. Exxon Valdez Shoreline Treatment and Operations: Implications for Response, Assessment, Monitoring, and Research. Pages 309-328 in S.D. Rice, R.B. Spies, D.A. Wolfe, and B.A. Wright (editors). Proceedings of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Symposium. American Fisheries Society Symposium 18. An abstract for this chapter and all the chapters published in the Proceedings
