A View Towards Integrated Earth System Models Human-nature Interactions in the Marine World

IMBER focuses on the interactions and linkages between biogeochemical cycles and food webs with a view towards improving predictive capability for marine ecosystems. It is now apparent that the human dimension is an important component of marine ecosystems. Inclusion of the human aspects into marine ecosystem research is only beginning and considerable development is still required to allow meaningful interfacing of food web, biogeochemical and socio-economic systems. The inclusion of human impacts in Earth System models will allow the development of more accurate scenarios under future climate change.


This is an interdisciplinary summer school. We welcome applications from both natural and social scientists working on topics related to oceans and climate change who are interested in the challenge of crossing the barriers between disciplines.


The programme will focus on the interface between marine ecosystem biogeochemistry, physical drivers, food webs and socio-economic systems; with lectures on modelling all of these system processes, as well as model coupling and Earth System models. To help understanding there will be daily “hands-on” sessions with example models that can be usefully explored in the time available.
