Abstract : A two-day session on Marine Pollution preceded the Plenary Congress of CIESM, held in Athens in November 1972. About 40 papers dealing with various aspects of pollution in the Mediterranean were given. In this report the writer lists presentations, discusses briefly those which seemed particularly interesting, and gives a mildly optimistic prognosis for pollution research in the Mediterranean.
