All in all 29 young scientists from 15 countries are visiting ECORD Summer School 2014, which takes place at the MARUM from Sept. 22nd until Oct. 2nd. Themed "Subseafloor Biosphere: Current Advances and Future Challenges" this year’s Summer School addresses the latest developments in the investigation of the deep marine biosphere.
In a study, which is now published online in the magazine Nature Geoscience, MARUM scientists proved that the uplift of African mountain regions over the last 12 million years caused changes in the wind system at the South-West African coast and so intensified the upwelling of deep water in the Benguela system.
From September 21st until 24th, all in all 100 young scientists meet for the 5th Early Career Scientists Conference for Marine and Climate Research in Bremen. Themed “Natural and Social Aspects of the Earth System” this event brings together early career researchers from various scientific disciplines.
From September 15th to 18th, all in all 42 marine researchers from 18 countries come together at MARUM for the annual General Meeting of the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR). As non-governmental organization SCOR promotes and coordinates international oceanographic activities.
