DescriptionClimEco5 will focus on ways to model natural and anthropogenic problems that beset the world’s oceans and related ecosystem services. Oceanographic and environmental aspects will be outlined and linked to important social, economic, and policy issues with the ultimate goal of maintaining sustainable and productive oceans. Participants will be guided through integrated and spatial modelling approaches as applied in both the natural and social sciences. The use of indicators and statistical tools available to evaluate these complex social-ecological systems will also be discussed. Ways to deal with issues that arise when communicating this scientific and complex information to managers and decision-makers will be addressed. Lectures will examine a range of aspects related to modelling (including spatial modelling), monitoring, data analysis, indicators, and management advice and communication from a theoretical perspective as well as using case studies from coastal and upwelling systems from around the world.
