Five new publications related to ARtificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services (ARIES) applications have been recently published on a special issue of Science of the Total Environment. These publications have been developed by BC3 researchers Ferdinando Villa, Stefano Balbi, Ainhoa Magrach, María Almagro and Javier Mártinez, in collaboration with other researchers from other institutions belonging to the AQUACROSS project
Freshwater biodiversity is declining, despite national and international efforts to manage and protect freshwater ecosystems. Ecosystem-based management (EBM) has been proposed as an approach that could more efficiently and adaptively balance ecological and societal needs. However, this raises the question of how social and ecological objectives can be included in an integrated management plan. Here, we present a generic model-coupling framework tailored to address this question for freshwater ecosystems, using three components: biodiversity, ecosystem services (ESS), and a spatial prioritisation that aims to balance the spatial representation of biodiversity and ESS supply and demand.
The BC3 Basque Centre for Climate Change opens a competitive call for applications for predoctoral fellows in the context of the María de Maeztu award. The fellows will contribute to the BC3 Strategic Plan (2018-2021). This Strategic Plan is aligned with six objectives and two cross cutting themes, which include a further step moving towards solutions co-designed with decision makers in the post-COP21 and Sustainable Development Goals world (transdisciplinary science).
Bc3ko zuzendari zientifikoa, María José Sanz, BERRIA egunkariak elkarrizketatu du Katowicen gertatu den COP24ren eta hemen ezarritako akordioen inguruan. Sanz ikertzailea, COP honek ekarri dituen erronkak azpimarratu ditu, baita ere Pariseko akordioetatik eratorritako pentsamolde aldaketez mintzatu da. Klimari buruzko Goi-bilera honetan ikusi da, BC3ko zuzendariaren arabera, denok hartu behar ditugula aritze zein egokitze neurriak.
BC3, through the BALELUR Project, will participate in mountaineer Alex Txikon’s WinterTopAppeal expedition to scale the K2 summit. The project spearheaded by BC3 seeks to exploit publicity from the expedition to underscore the problem of global warming through a series of pioneering initiatives, such as the use of solar panels and windmills to transmit the message that even an expedition must be sensitive to the problems of climate change. On its end, the multidisciplinary BALELUR project will facilitate ascertaining the effects of climate change on the region and raising awareness about them.
