23 - 28/jul/2012 | Ankara, Turkey
There is only one week to go before the closing date for applications to attend the IMBER ClimECO3 Summer School: A view towards Earth System models: Human-natural system interactions in the marine world.
This exciting, multidisciplinary training programme retains the general ClimECO topic of climate change and marine ecosystems, but goes a step further by including societal impacts and responses in the modelling of marine food webs. We hope to bring together a diverse group of students and early career scientists (up to six years post PhD graduation) with natural and social science backgrounds.
The summer school will be held at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara Turkey from 23-28 July 2012.
Please go to our [www.imber.info/index.php/Early-Career/IMBER-Summer-Schools/ClimECO3-July-2012-Ankara-Turkey web page] for details of the programme and presenters and to apply online.
IMBER focuses on the interactions and linkages between biogeochemical cycles and food webs with a view towards improving predictive capability for marine ecosystems. It is now apparent that the human dimension is an important component of marine ecosystems. Inclusion of the human aspects into marine ecosystem research is only beginning and considerable development is still required to allow meaningful interfacing of food web, biogeochemical and socio-economic systems. The inclusion of human impacts in Earth System models will allow the development of more accurate scenarios under future climate change.
This is an interdisciplinary summer school. We welcome applications from both natural and social scientists working on topics related to oceans and climate change who are interested in the challenge of crossing the barriers between disciplines.
The programme will focus on the interface between marine ecosystem biogeochemistry, physical drivers, food webs and socio-economic systems; with lectures on modelling all of these system processes, as well as model coupling and Earth System models. To help understanding there will be daily "hands-on" sessions with example models that can be usefully explored in the time available.
