Biogeochemistry Across Boundaries - a celebration of Professor Tim Jickells
AMBIO IX 24th-27th June 2019, UEA

About AMBIO IX:
On the occasion of AMBIO’s ninth biennial meeting, we are delighted to celebrate the immense contributions of Professor Tim Jickells. Tim’s career has touched the full breadth of marine biogeochemistry, where he has personally pioneered transformative research and championed support for many of us in diverse roles of marine biogeochemical research, teaching and governance at local, national and international scales.
 
With support from the Challenger Society, University of East Anglia, Planet Ocean Ltd and Cefas, we look forward to hosting a 3-day conference in Norwich, with a celebratory dinner to be held on Wednesday June 26th. A outline programme is available here.

CONFIRMED KEYNOTES:
Professor Robert Duce, Texas A&M University
Assnt. Professor Laura Bristow, University of Southern Denmark
Professor Richard Sanders, National Oceanography Centre
Dr Sian Henely, University of Edinburgh
Professor Tim Jickells, University of East Anglia

AMBIO is a thriving Special Interest Group of the Challenger Society for Marine Science - dedicated to, and run by, its members.

 Our mission is to:
  • Provide a technical forum for students, educators, researchers and governmental and industrial partners with shared interests in marine biogeochemistry;
  • Communicate and facilitate the proposal of strategic research, infrastructure development and collaboration;
  • Connect Early Career Researchers (ECRs) with the UK-marine biogeochemical network;
  • Enable access to mentoring across institutions for early- and mid-career marine biogeochemists;
  • Disseminate recent advances in marine biogeochemistry through the biennial AMBIO science meetings;
  • Promote ECRs and celebrate important contributors to marine biogeochemistry through awards, recognition and social engagements at AMBIO meetings;
  • Engage other Special Interest Groups for the benefit of cross-disciplinary research.

Ocean Challenge search function

There is a new online search function for all Ocean Challenge issues that allows anyone to easily search for articles on a specific topic. We hope this will be used not just by the marine science community but by educators who would otherwise not have access to such resources.
