CERES partners and members of CERES Research Advisory Board are gearing up for an active role in the upcoming 4th Symposium on the Effects of Climate Change on the World’s Oceans hosted in Washington D.C. (check here) by International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
Over 600 scientists will converge in Washington from Monday to Friday June 4th to 8th to discuss recent research on how oceans are changing, the risks associated with these changes and effective responses for adaptation and mitigation.
Four members of CERES (research partners and advisory board members) served on the Scientific Organizing Committeer for this event and four members are convening either workshops (W1, W6, W10) or Theme Sessions (S2). Throughout that week, CERES science and solutions for Blue Growth of Europe’s aquaculture and fisheries industries in a future climate will also be well represented in a series of invited and plenary presentations.

Check the workshops here:
Workshop 1: Communicating and responding to climate change

Workshop 6: Utilizing bioenergetics measurements and modeling to evaluate climate change effects on marine species and ecosystems

Workshop 10: Intercomparison of fisheries and marine ecosystem models

Session 2: From prediction to projection: the role of seasonal to decadal forecasts in a changing climate
