  • Memorandum of Understanding signed between IMBER and ECNU 
    A ceremony to mark the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to extend the term of the IMBER Regional Project Office (RPO) at the State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (SKLEC) at the East China Normal University (ECNU), was held at ECNU, Shanghai, China on 14 October 2013. The MOU was signed by Eileen Hofmann (Chair of the IMBER Scientific Steering Committee) and Ziqiang Zhu (Vice-President of ECNU). Yunxuan Zhou (Director of SKLEC), Shuzhe Ding (Director of the International Exchange Department of ECNU), and the IMBER Regional Project Office staff attended the ceremony.

  • Condolences from IMBER on the passing of John Steele 
     
     
    Jone STEELE
     

    The IMBER community was sad to hear of the passing of John Steele on 4 November 2013. John was a pioneer in the development of modeling marine ecosystems. His advances in end-to-end modelling provided the basis for linking food webs and biogeochemical cycles, which is a primary IMBER research theme. John was a regular attendee at IMBER activities, and his insights, advice and good humour will be missed by all.

    Our condolences to his family and friends.
