Ocean Ecologies and their Physical Habitats in a Changing Climate
The workshop will focus on two main themes:
1. Polar and sea ice ecologies
2. Phytoplankton and the carbon cycle
These themes are particularly timely in that the impact of climate change on these systems has been quite pronounced. Moreover, these areas are further tied together through the interplay of a wide range of the length scales involved, from microscopic to many kilometers over oceanic regions. As with all aspects of mathematics and climate change, this is an emerging area, and part of the reason for running the workshop is to help identify the mathematical challenges and opportunities the emerging topics present.
