Venue : Bolgatty Palace & Island Resort

INDO-MARECLIM organised a one-week winter school at Bolgatty Palace and Island Resort, Kochi (India) from 2 – 7 November 2013. During the winter school, which was an inter-disciplinary training programme, a select group of instructors from India and Europe provided lectures and practical training on recent advancements in the global understanding of marine ecosystems, climate change and their socio-economic impacts. The instructors were: Marcello Vichi (University of Bologna, Italy), Phillip Williamson (University of East Anglia, UK), Prof. Trevor Platt (PML, UK), Dr. Shubha Satyendranath (PML, UK), Dr. Jan Even Øie Nilsen (NERSC, Norway), Dr. Annalisa Cherchi (CMCC, Italy), Lasse Petterson (NERSC, Norway), Dr. Annemarie Groot (Alterra, Netherlands), Prof. P. V. Joseph (NERCI, India), Prof. N. R. Menon (NERCI, India).

Climate change and variability, specifically related to the Indian Ocean, have a profound influence on the Indian monsoon, and on marine biological production, biodiversity and the integrity and functioning of marine ecosystems. Monsoon, coastal upwelling, climate variability and resultant fluctuations in marine fishery resources have significant impact on the livelihood of coastal fisherfolk.

INDO-MARECLIM is an EU FP7 funded programme which addresses the above issues by way of model experiments, remote sensing studies and analyses of data collected and compiled from different sources.
