IMBER ClimEco4 Summer School ­Second Announcement



Applications are now being accepted for the IMBER ClimEco4 Summer School


The focus will be Delineating the issues of climate change and impacts to marine ecosystems: Bridging the gap between research, assessment, policy and management.

If you are a student or early-career researcher interested in the impact of global change on marine ecosystems and the human populations that depend on them, then this is the summer school for you!

ClimEco4 will provide the opportunity to learn about:

  • Climate pressures on marine systems from a bio-physical and human perspective
  • Modelling complex systems
  • Data access and analysis
  • Indicators - how they can be used to evaluate marine ecosystems, how to construct them (for process/observation scientists), how to use them (modellers from natural and social sciences), and how to  combine them for policy and decision-making.

Daily hands on sessions will allow you to work with databases (bring your own if you have one), indicators and models, applying the concepts covered in the lectures.

Additional information can be found on the summer school website, including how to apply (before 15 March 2014).
