Description

An engagement event on the subject of "Ocean predictions and observations in response to the climate emergency" which is organised by the European-funded Blue-Action project on 16 October 2019, from 09:00, at the Edinburgh City Chambers Business Centre.

The event is hosted by the Blue-Action consortium, a major European project on the impact of Arctic warming on the northern hemisphere weather and climate. The focus of this event will be how we can take world class research from partners in Scotland and Europe on ocean observations and state-of-the-art climate models, and develop climate information and climate services which can be used for real-life solutions to problems Scotland and other countries will face in the next 10 years. One of the applications focuses on how predictions of the physical environment can be translated to marine productivity and multi-annual fisheries-related predictions.

The event is timed to coincide with the Blue-Action project's annual science meeting (15-17 October 2019). For this public event on 16 October, we are planning to invite a number of interested government officials, academics, and industry and NGO representatives to find out more about the latest scientific results and how these can provide practical solutions to adapt to climate change. The format of the event will be three short presentations, followed by an opportunity to discuss these and network with Blue-Action scientists and other attendees.

More details can be found on the attached flyer. If you wish to attend, please RSVP to Hannah Grist
