There is a limited understanding of the long physicochemical and biological evolution of the ocean. In a context of climate change, it is crucial to better understand the paleo-ocean and how it has evolved into the present ocean. That information would allow us to generate better predictions of the future ocean.
The RMSC2022 will be a 7 full-day workshop, from 25th September - 2nd October 2022. The main aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists from different disciplines (paleoceanographers, biogeochemists, conservation biologists, microbial ecologists, ecosystem modellers, geologists and physical oceanographers) in order to develop improved perspectives on the future ocean, based on knowledge from the past and present.
The workshop will run at the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona, Spain.
The format will include 5 days of presentations plus moderated discussions and a two-day retreat to produce the draft of a position paper. The retreat will help to improve the quality and scope of the paper produced while also contributing to encourage and/or strengthen networking among participants.
The RMSC2022 will promote synergies and dialogues between different disciplines (e.g., Earth system and ocean modelling, paleoceanography, microbiology, biogeochemistry, physical oceanography, ecology and evolution) aiming to increase our understanding and generate perspectives on the past, present and future ocean as well as the implications for future ocean life, ecosystem services and humankind.
The Past, Present and Future of a living ocean: 2022 Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquia (RMSC2022) FSW will:
- Increase our understanding and generate perspectives on the past, present and future ocean as well as the implications for future ocean life.
- Bring together scientists from different disciplines and promote synergies and dialogues between different disciplines.
- Contribute to assisting ERCs in networking for their future career.
- Promote knowledge transfer between senior, junior and next-generation researchers from different disciplines.
- Tackle current societal challenges and governance issues, by e.g., including participants from governing bodies of the European Commission or similar.
- Publication of a position paper in Annual Reviews in Marine Science.
- Produce a Meeting report and roadmap for future research – identifying gaps and priority lines to advance our predictive capabilities in ocean science.
- Recorded audio-visual material for dissemination on the workshop webpage.
RMSC2022 will have an immediate impact by creating and promoting a network of connectedresearchers in this important field.
In conjunction with this, it will increase our understanding and generate perspectives on the past, present and future ocean as well as the implications for future ocean life.
