DescriptionThe Summer School series on Environmental Science is jointly organized by Xiamen University, City University of Hong Kong, San Diego State University and Peking University. The Summer School is designed not only for university postgraduate students, but it is also relevant and applicable for professionals working in the area of marine and environmental science. The State Key Lab of Marine Environmental Science (MEL) has organized several summer schools with its partner institutions in previous years which were well attended by over 300 participants and very encouraging feedback was received. The themes of previous summer schools were “EIA and Ecotoxicology” in 2008, “EIA and Eutrophication (HAB)” in 2009 and “Multidisciplinary Research of Geo-Bio-Chemical Interactions in the Ocean and at the Seafloor” in 2011. This year we continue our mission to provide participants with quality learning, key concepts and current update in various aspects of environmental science. We are looking forward to seeing you in Xiamen this July.
