Lagoon Ecosystem Modelling (ECOPATH/ECOSIM): From Hydrodynamics to Fisheries

June 21- 23, 2011, University of Klaipeda

In the framework of the BONUS+ Project AMBER (Assessment and Modelling Baltic Ecosystem Response) a workshop will take place for Ph.D. students from countries around the Baltic Sea. The students should become familiar with fundamental principles of modelling and should learn the application of ECOPATH/ECOSIM to a given data set and the development of sustainable fisheries.

Philosophy of modelling, numerical nitti gritti, model construction, types of models, hydrodynamical and ecosystem Models, Application of ECOPATH and ECOSIM
