IMBIZO II Integrating biogeochemistry and ecosystems in a changing ocean: Regional comparisons
Time: 2010.10.10 – 2010.10.14
Location: Heraklion, Crete, Greece
Workshop 1: The effect of varying element ratios on community structure at low trophic levels and food quality at mid and high trophic levels,
Workshop 2: Large-scale regional comparisons of marine biogeochemistry and ecosystem processes – research approaches and results,
Workshop 3: Sensitivity of marine food webs and biogeochemical cycles to enhanced stratification.
DRY CRUISE workshop: Prior to the IMBER IMBIZO, the Data Management Committee held a data management workshop. This covered the good data management practices given in the IMBER Data Management Cookbook followed by a DRY CRUISE during which the participants used and explored these techniques.
