IMBER Open Science Conference (23-27 June 2014 in Bergen, Norway)



The Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) project is an interdisciplinary global environmental change research initiative that is focused on understanding the sensitivity of marine biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems to global change and predicting ocean responses to global change and the effects on the Earth System and human society.

The IMBER Open Science Conference will provide a synthesis of a range of topics related to marine biogeochemistry and ecosystem research and the human dimension of global marine change. 

The IMBER Scientific Steering Committee invites you to participate in the Open Science Conference to learn about current research, present new research findings, share your knowledge, and develop a framework for future marine research directions and collaborations.
