Climate change and marine ecosystems



Program Highlights

Oceans play a vital role in the global carbon cycle by acting as a sink for the atmospheric CO2. On the other hand, global warming and ocean acidification has a profound effect on marine organisms and the integrity and function of marine ecosystems. In this first summer course of this series, we will focus on the microbial food web dynamics under changing climates. Both experimental and modeling approaches will be covered.

The course will includes daily lectures in the mornings and evenings supplemented by workshops, tutorials, poster sessions, and demonstrations in the afternoon. Special emphasis should be put on student-faculty interaction.
