FOL learns about modelling the ocean
Climate Change has the potential to alter the current connectivity patterns of marine stocks. In the case of sessile resources, by changing their larval dispersal. In the near future this could be the case of Stalked Barnacles, a coastal resource whose managament is studying the FOL member Alba Aguión in her thesis.
Since larval connectivity is largely dependent on oceanographic conditions, Alba is interested in the modelling of the ocean. To learn more about the subject, she will be attending the “Systems Modelling and Ocean Observation” course offered in Campus DO*MAR (University of Vigo) next week. The course is coordinated by the researchers Julio Martín Herrero and Jesús Dubert, and it is estructured in 7 lectures in 4 days. The attendance to the course will be very useful for a deeper understanding of how ocean models are done, which will give Alba an insight of how larval connectivity patterns of species such as Stalked Barnacles are studied under Climate Change.
