IMBERIntegrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research
|Type of Structure:||program|
|Parent Organisations:||FutureEarth, IGBP, SCOR|
|Duration :||2001 to present|
|Contact Address:||Dr. Einar Svendsen
General information and objectivesThe goal of the IMBER Project is to understand how interactions between marine biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems respond to and force global change.
To address the IMBER goal, four scientific themes, each including several issues, have been identified:
Theme 1. Key Processes: What are the key marine biogeochemical cycles, ecosystem processes, and their interactions, that will be impacted by global change?
Theme 2. Sensitivity to Global Change: How will key marine biogeochemical cycles, ecosystems and their interactions, respond to global change?
Theme 3. Interactions with the Earth System: What is the role of the ocean biogeochemistry and ecosystems in regulating climate?
Theme 4. Responses of Society: What are the relationships between marine biogeochemical cycles, ecosystems, and the human system?
To understand how interactions between marine biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems respond to and force global change
