More information:


The Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) program invites applications to a summer school session in Climate and Marine Ecosystems, entitled "ClimEco4." The session will be held 4-9 August 2014 at the East China Normal University in Shanghai, China.

This fourth IMBER summer school, ClimEco4, will continue IMBER's focus on fostering research at the interface of natural and human systems. It will be structured around lectures and activities that focus on indices of climate change, climate impacts, and ecosystem services; and how these are linked to indices for socio-economic and policy information in relation to climate-ecosystem interactions.

Students and early-career researchers from the natural and social sciences, working on topics related to the ocean and climate change, and interested in the challenge of crossing the barriers between disciplines are welcome. ClimEco4 will be limited to about 60 participants.

Application deadline: 15 March 2014.
