    ClimEco5 banner
    We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the IMBER ClimEco5 summer school – Towards more resilient oceans: Predicting and projecting future changes in the ocean and their impacts on human societies – that will be held in Natal, Brazil from 10-17 August 2016.
    We invite students and early career researchers (<10 years post PhD) working on global change issues, and interested in working at the interface of human and natural systems to apply to attend. Numbers are limited to about 60 participants to ensure optimal student-lecturer interactions, interactive practical sessions and group projects.

  • Call for abstracts for the ESSAS 2016 Annual Meeting
    essas2016Banner-2
    The Ecosystem Studies of Subarctic and Arctic Seas (ESSAS) is holding its Annual Science Meeting on 7-9 March, 2016, in Yokohama Japan.
    The title of the meeting is Scientific Challenges in a Changing Arctic & Subarctic. The various sessions cover paleo-ecology, biogeochemistry, physical oceanography, biological oceanography, fisheries and human dimensions.
    Abstract submissions related to the subarctic or Arctic are encouraged for any of these sessions with a deadline submission of January 31, 2016. Details on the various sessions of the meeting as well as logistics can be found at http://www.arc.hokudai.ac.jp/en/essas2016
    We hope to see a number of you in Yokohama.
  • Great short film on ocean acidification
    The animation movie BLUE OCEAN is a result of the Oceans 2015 initiative which was launched to provide COP21 negotiators with key information on how the future ocean may respond to various CO2 emission scenarios.
    It is led by the French CNRS-UPMC University and Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) and is supported by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the BNP Paribas Foundation and the Monégasque Association for Ocean Acidification. Key products of this initiative are available for scientists, decision makers and the general public. The scientific background is lead by the IMBER-researcher Jean-Pierre Gattuso including his resent paper in Science: Contrasting futures for ocean and society from different anthropogenic CO2 emissions scenarios. Science 349: aac4722. [Link], Gattuso et al. 2015. More can be found on: http://bit.ly/1M6YiS6
