This seminar aims to present recent results and perspectives on quantitative modeling of two of the most prominent contemporary scientists that integrate global climate and biogeochemical models with aspects directly related to living resources, and the contributions of the oceans to society.

William Cheung, from the University of British Columbia's Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries, will explore why advanced studies on the subject are needed in addition to presenting the results of his research. Marion Gehlen, from the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (France), will present perspectives from a biogeochemical scientist's viewpoint.

This will be the first of a series of debates that has been originated from the project The Future of Marine-dependent Societies: Climate Change, Innequalities and Cooperation in Complex Socio-ecological Systemsdeveloped by Professor Maria Gasalla (IO-USP) in 2016 during her participation in IEA's Sabbatical Year Program. It will address subjects from an advanced studies' perspective in order to broaden the academic dialogue with society.

The next themes to be addressed by the cycle are:

  • Future of Marine-dependent Societies: Climate Change and Oceans;
  • Future of Marine-dependent Societies: Innequalities and the Blue Economy;
  • Future of Marine-dependent Societies: Cooperation and SDGs.
