A Special Issue of the ICES Journal of Marine Science — from the ESSAS Open Science Meeting (OSM) on Comparative Studies of Climate Effects on Polar and Subpolar Ocean Ecosystems: Progress in Observation and Prediction held in Seattle, Washington, during May 2011 — has just been published.  Edited by K. Drinkwater, G. Hunt, Jr., O. Astthorsson and E. Head, it contains 20 papers from the OSM along with an introduction to the volume and the meeting.  This meeting provided an opportunity to showcase the progress made within ESSAS and to identify remaining knowledge gaps and future research needs.  Papers in this issue cover a wide variety of topics, including ecosystem components from physics to marine mammals to humans.  The volume is organized geographically, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the Pacific, through into the Arctic and the Atlantic, and ending in the Barents Sea. In addition, one paper deals with the Antarctic. The OSM and papers in this issue have provided new results and methods that expand our knowledge of the subarctic seas. The issue was dedicated in memory to our friend and colleague Bernard Megrey who passed away unexpectedly on October 1, 2010.  Bern was strongly involved in ESSAS, and particularly with the modeling of marine ecosystems.
