The fifth Xiamen Symposium on Marine Environmental Sciences, XMAS-V, will be held in Xiamen from January 11th to 14th, 2021. XMAS-V will focus on how Multidisciplinary Sciences Can Serve a Sustainable and Healthy Ocean. The symposium will consist of different, interconnected sessions covering physical oceanography, marine biogeochemistry, biological oceanography, and marine ecotoxicology along with workshops for emerging topics in marine environmental sciences such as how to achieve the goals outlined in the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030). It will also be one of the important hallmarks of Xiamen University’s centenary celebrations.
