Workshop 2. Climate change projections for marine ecosystems: Best practice, limitations and interpretations

Enrique Curchitser (Rutgers University, USA)
Icarus Allen (Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK)

Invited Speakers:
William Cheung (Fisheries Centre, UBC, Canada)
Villy Christensen (University of British Columbia, Canada)
Jason Holt (National Oceanographic Centre, UK)
Charles Stock (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, USA)

This 2-day workshop aims to assemble scientists interested in making and interpreting projections of ecosystem responses to future climate change. The goal is to describe different approaches to modeling the impacts of climate variability on marine ecosystems, their ability to support sustainable harvesting and to highlight the strengths and limitations of the different approaches. We seek models that address both global and regional ecosystems and are particularly interested in presentations covering a range of models from statistical to mechanistic approaches including mass-balance (ECOPATH), size-based, minimalist, individual-based (IBMs) and end-to-end (E2E) models. Emphasis will be placed on models that examine trophic interactions as well as approaches that link biogeochemical processes with higher trophic level production. Presentations that discuss advantages and limitations of particular approaches and discuss the quantification of uncertainty in climate forced simulations are encouraged.
