50th International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics
Long-term studies in oceanography – a celebration of 50 years of science at the Liege Colloquium
Liège, Belgium – 28th May to 1st June 2018
- Ocean dynamics & climate change
Studies addressing the impact of climate change on ocean dynamics, and the influence of the ocean on climate.
- Oceanic climate records (datasets, methods and comparisons)
Generic studies about model-based and observation-based datasets (reanalyses, reconstructions), their validation and intercomparisons, and studies about specific methods for multidecadal reanalyses and reconstructions (assimilation, bias corrections and drift corrections). Reprocessing and intercallibration of multi-mission datasets.
- Coastal and regional processes
Studies focusing on long-term variability and local trends of specific regions, including downscaling of large scale climatic processes.
- Trends in polar regions
Abstracts on the trends of ocean and sea ice dynamics of polar regions, influence of climate on their variability and the impact of these regions on the global climate system.
- Biogeochemical processes
Studies about oceanic long-term ecosystem changes induced by climate variability.
- Long-term trends in oceanography (open session)
An open session for all studies on the multidecadal study of the ocean. Abstracts that do not fit in other session can be submitted here.
Contributions to these focal topics are invited to the Liège Colloquium in 2018. (http://labos.ulg.ac.be/gher/home/colloquium/colloquium-2018/abstract-submission/)
