ICES 4th Decadal Variability of the North Atlantic and its Marine Ecosystems: 2010-2019

26-28 April 2022
Bergen, Norway

Call for abstracts now open!
Deadline: 27 September 2021

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Climate variability and change is impacting the distributions and productivity of marine species in the North Atlantic. Monitoring and predicting the effects of climate change on the distribution of habitats, and the marine species that occupy them is critical for resource management.  This 4th symposium is part of a series of decadal symposiums organized by ICES, where researchers gather to review the variability of North Atlantic environmental conditions and marine ecosystems over the past decade. Researchers aim to understand the relationship between ecosystem components and how they influence the distribution, abundance and productivity of living marine resources. In addition, researchers will review recent advances in sub-decadal forecasts of ecosystem change.

The symposium will provide a forum to highlight key ICES working group activities, allowing scientists, from multiple disciplines to network, build relationships and share their scientific understanding of marine ecosystems. ​

Call for abstracts is now open. Deadline: 27 Sep​tember 2021​.
