IMBIZO 5: Marine biosphere research for a sustainable ocean: Linking ecosystems, future states and resource management

Time: 02.10.2017 - 05.10.2017
Location: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA, USA

The fifth IMBeR IMBIZO (the Zulu word for a gathering) will be hosted by the Ocean, Carbon & Biogeochemistry Group at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA, USA from 2-6 October 2017.

IMBIZO 5 will follow the usual format of three concurrent but interacting workshops. The three workshops are:

  1. Critical constraints on future projections of marine systems (co-Chairs: Laurent Bopp and Eric Galbraith)
  2. Metabolic diversity and evolution in marine biogeochemical cycling and ocean ecosystem processes (co-Chairs: Gerhard Herndl and Tatiana Rynearson)
  3. Management Strategy Evaluation: Achieving transparency in natural resource management by quantitatively bridging social and natural science uncertainties (co-Chairs: Ingrid van Putten and Cisco Werner)
