BC3 Webinar: Artificial Intelligence applied to ocean waves forecast: A deep learning approach to predict significant wave height.
Better predictions of ocean waves conditions are essential for a handful of industries that define its operations based on the outcome of these analysis. Almost all engineering applications that happens in the ocean, from transportation to renewable energies, going across offshore platforms and alerts of catastrophic events, not to mention geosciences research benefits from an accurate description of sea state.
For the last two decades we have been spinning around the same problem with maladaptation – we know what it is, but we rarely know when it is happening in real time. Most examples of maladaptation are only detected after the fact when it is too late to prevent them from doing damage. Still we are fascinated by this concept. This talk addresses maladaptation [...]
EuroBasque organiza en colaboración con Europe Direct Bizkaia, la Secretaría General de Acción Exterior de Gobierno Vasco y la Facultad de Economía y Empresa de la UPV/EHU el próximo martes, 22 de junio, de 9:00h. a 14:00 h. la jornada
Conferencia sobre crisis económica y climática para debatir en torno a las dos caras de un mismo problema
La sesión programada este próximo miércoles 28 de abril dentro del ciclo de charlas sobre cambio climático Agora K2050, versará sobre las consecuencias económicas de no actuar frente al cambio climático
El Plan de Recuperación, Transformación y Resiliencia impulsado por el Gobierno de España a través de los fondos Next Generation va a dirigirse, principalmente, a proyectos de innovación e infraestructura. Sin embargo, la creación de una Europa neutra en carbono exige ir más allá y acompañar esta transición tecnológica de acciones dirigidas a propiciar los cambios culturales de hábitos y prácticas sociales. Es [...]
BC3 Seminar: Accelerating America’s Pledge: Going All-In to Build a Prosperous, Low-Carbon Economy for the United States
A globally sufficient response to climate change will require new models of organization, coalition building, and implementation in which rapid decarbonization at the national level will be rooted in actions initiated by a diverse range of actors. The United States provides a window into how the diversification of climate action across actors can drive changes in emissions.
BC3 Seminar: “Pueblos y Nacionalidades Indígenas” of the Ecuadorian Amazon, Shuar, Achuar, Zápara and Quichuas
Accelerated climate change, especially since the last half of the twentieth century, is an additional challenge for the indigenous peoples of the Amazon, who depend directly on the resources of the territory. These include subsystems like agriculture (itinerant, semi itinerant and localized) art of hunting, art of fishing and silviculture. The space where humans unify themselves with nature (abiotic and biotic) allows the weaving [...]
Different lines of evidence suggest that divergence in plasticity plays a key role in adaptation to global environmental change. Many scientists argue that genetic variation in plastic responses to the environment (G × E) could be an important predictor of species' vulnerabilities to climate change. But there is not a general pattern among either experimental or theoretical studies. Plasticity acting at the level of [...]
Increasing mortality has been reported for many forests across Europe, but exact rates and trends remain poorly quantified. We tackle this lack of knowledge by using satellite data for quantifying and mapping rates and trends in forest mortality across Europe.
BC3 Seminar: Can co-creation of (students of) the arts and sciences enhance public climate-consciousness?
One of the most challenging aspects of the Anthropocene and ongoing climate change is the aspect of change. Environments change, we change environments, so now humanity needs to change. Change our perceptions of the planet and the self, our research and working methods, our idiom and visual narratives, and also teaching methods. Drawing from experiences of artists collective Satellietgroep and the educational pilot project [...]
