Morning 1, Session 1: Introduction and vent larval dispersal studies
Session Chairs: Stace Beaulieu, Hiromi Watanabe, and Satoshi Mitarai
This session begins with a welcome to OIST and introduction to the workshop objectives. The keynote talks will feature the LADDER and Okinawa Trough vent larval dispersal studies. We will conclude the session with discussion.
