January 2021 – Ecosystem Modelling Graduate Course online

A new Ecosystem Modelling Course, organized by the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada), just started online!

The course is open for UBC graduate students with interest in quantitative modelling, as well as for some upper-level UBC undergraduate students.  Because of the Covid-19 situation, UBC does not allow on-campus classes for the coming semester, therefore the course is online via Zoom. This opens for wider participation in the course, and we allow informal auditing of the course. In addition to Zoom, we will broadcast the classes directly on FaceBook Live, available through the Ecopath FaceBook page.

We intend to make recordings of the lectures and Q/A (not class discussions and tutorials) available through www.ecopath.org‘s YouTube channel.

Many interesting seminars will be given during the course from expert marine ecosystem modelers around the world. Instructors are Dr. Villy Christensen and MSc Santigao de la Puente (UBC, Canada), Leigh McGaughey (River Institute, Canada) and Marta Coll (ICM-CSIC, Spain).
