Ryan Rykaczewski, Nereus Program alumnus and assistant professor at the University of South Carolina, recently participated in the “School on Ocean Climate Modeling: Physical and Biogeochemical Dynamics of Semi-Enclosed Seas” in Ankara, Turkey, from September 28 to October 1, as an invited expert on upwelling ecosystems. Additionally, Ryan participated in a CLIVAR workshop on upwelling from October 2 to 3 in Ankara.
The School on Ocean Climate Modelling was organized by the International Centre for Theoretical Physical and hosted at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey. Graduate students, early career scientists, and ocean and marine ecology modelling experts participated in these sessions.
“I was thrilled to see widespread international interest in the topics, and among the 27 students, we had participants from 11 countries across Europe and the Middle East,” says Rykaczewski. “The students were well prepared and had interests ranging from the physics of atmospheric and ocean circulation to biogeochemical feedbacks between ocean and land ecosystems.”
