Climate driving of marine ecosystem changes
IMBER (http://www.imber.info/) is very pleased to announce that the workshop “Climate driving of marine ecosystems changes: Training for young marine scientists” will be held on April 21-24 2008 at the European Institute for Marine Studies (IUEM) in Brest, France.
This exploratory workshop intends to increase the interactions between physical climate science and marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems communities with focus on impacts of climate variability on the marine environment. The workshop is aimed at young marine scientists. The objectives are, to increase their knowledge on existing climate data, to evaluate their relevance for biogeochemical and ecosystem studies and to judge their quality (uncertainties).
The goals of this workshop are:
1) To increase the interactions between physical climate science and marine biogeochemistry/ecosystems communities with a focus on impacts of climate variability on the marine environment;
2) To foster cooperation between physical climate scientists and marine scientists;
3) To take stock of IPCC 4AR results, ocean/atmosphere reanalysis data and observational data, where relevant for impacts on the marine environment.
This workshop is a combination of science presentations around defined themes followed by discussions and "hands-on" sessions where young scientists with a marine biogeochemistry/ecosystems background learn how to use climate data. This includes finding relevant data, scrutinising their quality and knowing how to make use of them.
