GOVST-VI meeting: Science Day

Following the agreement at last year's GOVST-V meeting a Science Day was added to the new meeting schedule. The theme for this year was  (Western) Boundary Currents. A number of local researchers and guests were invited to present their latest work under this topic. The Science Day occured on day 4 of the GOVST meeting and was welcomed by all attendees. The presentations of this day are shown below:
