MATHEMATICAL MODELLING FOR TSUNAMI EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS. AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE (TsuMaMoS 2014)

Web Site http://edanya.uma.es/tsumamos2014

TSUMAMOS 2014 CONFERENCE
--------------------------

The goal of this conference is bringing together scientists from around the world with expertise or interest in Tsunami Early Warning Systems (TEWS) with a special emphasis on the North-Eastern Atlantic, Mediterranean and connected seas region (NEAMTWS). The conference aims at evaluating the current state of the art technology in fast tsunami computation for rapid (much faster than real time) tsunami forecasting. The scope includes mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of generation, propagation, and coastal amplification processes within the framework of TEWSs. In addition to these, other closely related topics such as monitoring, detection, operational forecasting, source inversion, public outreach, information exchange, warning issues, and tsunami hazard assessment will be discussed. The relevance and role of these topics in the development of structural and societal mitigation strategies and policies will also be addressed.

Marine Affairs Program at Dalhousie

Making waves in marine management since 1986

The world’s oceans, as well as the people who depend on them, are under more stress than ever before. Climate change, sea level rise, acidification, coastal development and pollution are just a few of the myriad issues affecting the worlds marine environments.

Dalhousie’s Marine Affairs Program provides an enquiring, stimulating and interdisciplinary learning environment. It is our goal to better understand the sustainable use and conservation of the world’s coastal and ocean environments. Students participating in the 16 month Master of Marine Management (MMM) degree are drawn from diverse academic backgrounds that include natural sciences, social sciences, engineering or the humanities. As they proceed with their program they gradually develop an interdisciplinary perspective on some of the most important issues that currently face the global marine community.

Dalhousie’s Marine Affairs Program is unique, providing students with technical capacity and professional development activities that lead to MMM graduates with leadership skills that include communication, collaboration and critical thinking.

 

Potential students interested in applying, or simply seeking more information about ongoing research activities, current faculty, graduate research projects, scholarships, or student and alumni profiles, please follow the included links.

New Publication on Marine Biodiversity in ABNJ

 

Dear colleagues,

We have the pleasure to announce the publication of a new article on the state of play of international discussions relating to the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ): "Getting to yes? Discussions towards an Implementing Agreement to UNCLOS on biodiversity in ABNJ".

It can be downloaded on our website under: http://www.iddri.org/Publications/Getting-to-yes-Discussions-towards-an-Implementing-Agreement-to-UNCLOS-on-biodiversity-in-ABNJ

This article is a policy brief which summarises and develops the main conclusions of an in-depth study on the history and challenges of the current discussions taking place at the United Nations General Assembly, "A long and winding road. International discussions on the governance of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction".

This study is available under: http://www.iddri.org/Publications/A-long-and-winding-road

Should you have any comment or question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Best regards.
