Earth System Science 2010: Climate, Global Change and People

Earth System Science 2010: Climate, Global Change and
People. 10-13 May 2010, Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Edinburgh,

This event is the First Open Science Conference of the
International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme¹s project 'Analysis, Integration
and Modelling of the Earth System' (AIMES), run in cooperation with QUEST, the
UK Natural Environment Research Council's directed programme for Earth system

The conference will showcase recent advances in the
understanding of Earth system dynamics and highlight new directions for the
analysis of the interactions between humans and our environment.

We welcome participants and contributors from the growing
international community engaged in all aspects of global change research.  Our aim is to help in the building of
much-needed bridges between the natural sciences, social sciences and
humanities, and between policy, assessment and research.

Our programme of talks, posters, workshops and training
sessions will address three themes:

  1. Earth System
    Modelling - from observations and process understanding to prediction and risk
  2. Dynamics of
    Biogeochemical Cycles and Climate - transitions, instabilities and feedbacks;
  3. People and Resources -
    perspectives on the relationships among environment, ecosystems and human

We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh!
