The Third International Symposium on the Effects of Climate Change on the World’s Oceans will be held in Santos, Brazil, on 23 - 27 March 2015.
The strong linkage between ocean dynamics and societal needs, underlined by the role of science, represents the background for a series of climate change meetings coordinated by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO).
This third symposium in the series provides opportunities for the international science community to bring the latest information, understanding, and assessment of the impacts of climate change on our oceans, covering themes from physical processes and their interaction with ecosystem dynamics, to resource provision and ocean governance. The latest developments in predicting changes in biodiversity, phenology, fisheries and ecosystems as well as in the physical systems that sustains these, will inform discussions on the risks and opportunities that climate change will bring to coastal communities and to society at large. The symposium will also highlight knowledge gaps to stimulate the development of the new generation of science of climate change impacts on our oceans.
