Integrated Ecosystem Assessments synthesise and evaluate information on physical, chemical, ecological, human and environmental process affecting ecosystems.

Topics covered include:

  • Development of integrated ecosystem assessments for the Arctic, Baltic, Barents, Celtic, North, northwest Atlantic and Norwegian seas
  • Comparative analyses of marine ecosystems
  • Ecosystem modelling
  • Methods and application of ecosystem-based management and risk assessment
  • Linking ecological, economic and social models and analyses to understand interactions and trade-offs between management objectives
  • Defining data needs to support integrated ecosystem assessment
  • Development of integrated advice to support ecosystem-based management
