Are you interested in gaining experience of working with established researchers to organize and deliver a conference session on ‘Connectivity of the West Pacific and Southern Ocean’?
Integrating Climate and Ecosystem Dynamics in the Southern Ocean (ICED) and Climate Impacts on Oceanic Top Predators (CLIOTOP) (two regional programmes of Integrated Marine Biosphere Research (IMBeR) are seeking ECRs to assist in organizing and delivering a proposed joint session on ‘Connectivity of the West Pacific and Southern Ocean’ at the forthcoming virtual West Pacific Symposium, November 2021. This session will be mainly predator focussed, taking into account the strong atmospheric teleconnections linking both regions. It will consider predator migration patterns and the connections/dependencies between summer/winter in different ecosystems between the west Pacific ocean through to the Southern Ocean (e.g. though to the East Antarctic and the Ross Sea regions). This session is a new approach and will contribute significantly to our understanding on the interaction between the Southern Ocean and Temperate Oceans.
