Salle Agora, Domaine du Haut-Carré - Talence (France)

08 - 09 Mar 2018

Square - From the deep past to the Anthropocene: coupling Earth system function to climatic change

From the deep past to the Anthropocene: coupling Earth system function to climatic change. Celebrating frontier research and promoting equality

The objective of this symposium is to bring together a range of interdisciplinary, Earth system researchers based in Europe advancing frontier research within their discipline to present the state-of-the-art in our understanding of how climate change has affected the function of the atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere in the past and how it is being forecast to function in the ‘Anthropocene’.

Over the last century, a positive trend in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations has been observed at the Earth’s surface. Attempts to predict how such global changes will affect the biodiversity, functioning and productivity of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the future still remain elusive. This is partially because it is a challenge to work across the many disciplines and temporal and spatial scales required to understand the many feedbacks that are in place within the Earth system. 

The objective of this symposium is to bring together a range of interdisciplinary, Earth system researchers based in Europe advancing frontier research within their discipline to present the state-of-the-art in our understanding of how climate change has affected the function of the atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere in the past and how it is being forecast to function in the ‘Anthropocene’. In addition to showcasing the exceptional advances underway across laboratories in Europe the symposium will also provide an opportunity to foster discussion around the subject of gender balance in science in general and in Earth System sciences in particular.

Guest speakers include: Dr Claudia Alves de Jesus-Rydin, ERCEA, Professor Sonia Seneviratne, ETH, Switzerland, Professor Hayley Fowler, University of Newcastle, UK, Professor Annette Menzel, Technical University of Munich, Germany, Professor Doerthe Tetzlaff, The Humboldt University, Germany, Professor Jennifer Mcelwain, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, Professor Heather Stoll, ETH, Switzerland, Dr Alexandra Turchyn, Univerity of Cambridge, UK, Professor Caroline Slomp, Universiteit Utrecht, Netherlands, Dr Sophie Opfergelt, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, Dr Emma Sayer, Lancaster University, UK, Professor Susan Trumbore, Max Planck Institute, Germany and Dr Lisa Wingate, INRA, France.
