Workshop „Essential Ocean Variables for monitoring and assessment of marine biodiversity and ecosystem health“

Jun 30, 2016 to Jul 01, 2016


In a two-day workshop a group of 60 experts will reflect on the current state of defining ‘Essential Ocean Variables‘ for monitoring and assessment of marine biodiversity and ecosystem health. They will highlight the main gaps in knowledge and discuss future needs in observing biodiversity, also for helping fisheries. The ultimate goal to which the workshop will contribute, is to define a consistent and internally accepted set of variables to observe, assess, and monitor biodiversity and the marine ecosystem. A joint session on “Biodiversity and Fisheries” together with the participants of the General Assembly of the EU project “AtlantOS” will initiate the workshop on 30th June. In the evening an impulse lecture followed by a poster session will take place and on 1st July specific topics and questions will be discussed.

Registration is required.
