SCOR WG EBUS 155 Summer School

Changes in coastal upwelling systems and their impact on marine resources

May 4-12, 2020, Dakar, Senegal

General Information

The SCOR Working Group EBUS 155 organizes an international summer school "Changes in coastal upwelling systems and their impact on marine resources" that will be held between May 4 and 12, 2020 at the Ecole Superieure Polytechnique (ESP), University Cheikh Anta Diop (UCAD), Dakar, Senegal. The country is situated at the southern tip of the Canary upwelling system. It hosts a coastal upwelling center which provides cold nutrient-rich deep waters, in winter and spring, thereby sustaining a rich ecosystem that supports one of the largest fisheries worldwide.

The SCOR WG EBUS 155 Summer School 2020 will bring together 40 attendees (MS/PhD students, postdoctoral scientists and early career scientists/professionals around the world) with the objective to provide an international training program and joint research opportunity for the next generation of ocean scientists focused on Eastern Boundary Upwelling Systems.

The Summer school is organized back to back with a TARA scientific seminar on “Biodiversity to Ecosystems” and “Science to Policy in the High Seas” of the TARA foundation, from May 13 to 15, 2020, Dakar, Senegal.
