CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Coastal Carolina will host the 46th Annual Marine Benthic Ecology Meeting at the Sheraton Convention Center April 12-15.

"Sustainable Oceans in Theory and Practice" is the theme of the gathering, according to a press release from Coastal Carolina University.

Scientists will be discussing topics that relate to locals in Myrtle Beach. Some of the topics include how to reset damaged coastlines and southeast stories of restoration and recovery.

An entire panel on those topics will be held on Thursday, April 13, from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the main ballroom and it will present "Using Marine Science to Reset Damaged Coasts and Communities" and will focus on "Success stories of Restoration and Recovery from the Southeast and Gulf Coasts."

Students and scientists are invited to present their research and discuss how to solve problems facing the marine ecosystems and shorelines.

Coastal Carolina University Marine Science Professor and Meeting Organizer Keith Walters said this meeting is a time to share research and find solutions.

It's also focused on the students. Out of the 600 people attending, half are students with their own research to share.
