Education and Outreach

Announcement for the ClimEco4 summer school

The focus will be Delineating the issues of climate change and impacts to marine ecosystems: Bridging the gap between research, assessment, policy and management.

 

If you are a student or early-career researcher interested in the impact of global change on marine ecosystems and the human populations that depend on them, then this is the summer school for you!

ClimEco4 will provide the opportunity to learn about:

  • Climate pressures on marine systems from a bio-physical and human perspective
  • Modelling complex systems
  • Data access and analysis Indicators - how they can be used to evaluate marine ecosystems, how to construct them (for process/observation scientists), how to use them (modellers from natural and social sciences), and how to  combine them for policy and decision-making.

Daily hands on sessions will allow you to work with databases (bring your own if you have one), indicators and models, applying the concepts covered in the lectures.

Additional information can be found on the summer school website, including how to apply (before 15 March 2014) – go to: http://www.imber.info/index.php/Early-Career/IMBER-Summer-Schools/ClimEco4-August-2014-Shanghai-China

Marine Conservation Summer Institute

The Marine Conservation Summer Institute will immerse students in the world of marine conservation biology and policy, giving them a set of basic tools for addressing and understanding issues of conserving marine biodiversity in the context of 21st Century society and the ‘anthropocene’ epoch. The Institute is set in the vibrant educational and research setting of the Duke University Marine Laboratory in Beaufort, North Carolina.

The five-week course consists of three weeks of plenary lectures, field trips and activities, and two intensive week-long modules intertwined in weeks two and four and led by experts in the field. Plenary weeks and modules will be focused on hands-on, team-based, experiential learning with meaningful faculty-student engagement that are hallmarks of the educational environment at the Marine Laboratory. Students will be in the field and at the discussion table, learning the basic tools of conservation biology and policy in the plenary weeks and delving deeply into special topics with experts during the module weeks.

Modules for 2014 are:
1) Deep Sea Conservation (Van Dover) & International Oceans Law (Kraska)
2) Conservation of Marine Mammals & Sea Turtles (Read) & Domestic Oceans Law (Roady)

Learning Objectives

  • Apply fundamental concepts of conservation biology and policy
  • Appreciate threats to biodiversity and strategies to preserve it
  • Analyze key concepts of social science and law involved in conservation

Skill Sets

  • Effecting change, understanding process
  • Mechanics of policy development
  • Organizational behavior and misbehavior
  • Negotiation dynamics
  • Understand roles and parameters

2014 Themes

  • Human Dimensions and the Marine Environment
  • Deep-Sea Conservation & International Ocean Governance
  • Invasive Species
  • Marine Vertebrate Conservation & US Oceans Law

Student awards at Mantle Imaging workshop, Tokyo 2011

Akiko Takeo (Earthquake Research Institute of Tokyo University) received an IR best poster award for her work entitled: “Seismic anisotropy in the uppermost mantle beneath oceanic regions from data of broadband OBSs”. She is interested in the seismic velocity structure in the uppermost mantle, as it is one of the keys to understanding plate tectonics. Takeo analyses data from broadband ocean bottom seismometers deployed in oceanic regions such as the Shikoku Basin, south of Japan.

Results of the "Code of Conduct" survey

In 2010, InterRidge members were invited to participate in a survey on the Statement of Responsible Research, devised in 2006. The results have been published in a paper entitled "Scientists as Stakeholders in Conservation of Hydrothermal Vents" by L. Godet, K. Zelnio and C. Van Dover. It can be accessed at:
