Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Research Symposium

Location: Plymouth
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2008-06-23

Event Description:
Following on from the success of AMEMR 2005, the Plymouth Marine Laboratory is pleased to announce that the second Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Symposium is scheduled to be held in Plymouth in June 2008.

Modelling provides a key scientific technique by which we can elucidate the workings of the marine system and predict its evolution in both the short and long term. The symposium is being convened as a forum for presentation and discussion of all aspects of model based marine ecosystem research, encompassing numerical, conceptual, mathematical and statistical approaches. We are particularly keen that this symposium will contribute to the next generation of model based exploration by providing scientists and students an opportunity to discuss and contrast recent advances, outstanding problems and future requirements.
