The Marine Station of Wimereux of the University of Lille and the University of Salento are organizing the Summer School 2024 focusing on Cross-Cutting Topics in Coastal Ecology.

Coastal ecosystems, including estuarine and intertidal habitats, experience significant pressure due to global changes. At the boundary between terrestrial and marine realms, these diverse environments encounter mounting challenges from anthropogenic pollutants such as plastics and the pervasive impacts of climate change, resulting in coastline alterations, temperature shifts, and the intensification of extreme events. Comprehending these habitats is pivotal for the sustainability of coastal ecosystems. This summer school delves into these emerging topics, fostering insights crucial for managing and conserving these critical coastal ecosystems. The summer school promises an innovative curriculum, delving into cutting-edge topics such as in-situ measurement techniques, experimental approaches, and methods in modelling ecology. The focus on the essential connection between observation and research lays the foundation for an enriching educational experience.

The event will be hosted in Wimereux, France within the framework of the 150th anniversary of the Marine Station.

Target audience: This summer school caters to a wide range of academic levels, offering tailored content and experiences suitable for master's students, doctoral candidates, and post-doctoral researchers passionate about advancing their knowledge in cutting-edge aspects of coastal ecology.
