Study Group: Socio-Ecological-Environmental Systems
  • Acronym: SG-SEES
  • Parent Committee: SB
  • Term: Jan. 2014 - Dec. 2015
  • Chair: Emanuele Di Lorenzo
Terms of Reference
  1. Assemble a team of experts for all the components that make up a Social-Ecological-Environmental System (SEES) and initiate a tighter communication among the experts to understand the challenges of conducting integrated science that include the climate, marine ecosystem and human dimensions explicitly.
  2. Develop an integrated conceptual model of SEES case study for hypoxia in the coastal ocean with the goal of developing a fully integrated quantitative model.
  3. Conduct a meeting at the FUTURE Open Science Meeting (April 2014) to discuss the conceptual SEES model and isolate the steps needed to initiate the development of the quantitative integrated model.
  4. Conduct a meeting at the PICES Annual Meeting (October 2014) to finalize a report with recommendations for how the Organization can advance in this field of coupled SEES approach to meet the goals of FUTURE.
