MarBEF/ICES Workshop on Benthos Related Environmental Metrics



Location: Oostende (Belgium)
Event Type: Workshop
Event Date: 2008-02-11    
End Date: 2008-02-14

Event Description:
The ICES Benthos Ecology Working Group, in cooperation with MarBEF, wants to invite you to the Workshop on Benthos Related Environmental Metrics [WKBEMET] to assess the effectiveness of any potential performance indicators in identifying cause-effect relationships, using a series of datasets from different areas with diverse anthropogenic activity. This workshop is open to anyone, including non BEWG members, with knowledge on indicators.

A first task would be to discuss the outcomes of the “Symposium on "Marine Environmental Indicators: Utility in Meeting Regulatory Needs” held in November 2007 in London and of the Intercalibration working group for the WFD.
The main aims of the workshop would then further be to:

(a) Look for the gaps in the knowledge of the applicability and performance of different indicators to the impacts of human-induced activities and changes in ecological state and biodiversity;
(b) Test the applicability of different indicators using multiple datasets from a wide range of regions;
(c) Use multiple datasets to test the performance of different indicators to human induced activities and changes in ecological state and to assess the effectiveness of performance indicators in identifying cause-effect relationships.
(for more info see BEWG report of 2007: http://www.ices.dk/reports/MHC/2007/BEWG07.pdf)
