At the end of March, there is a workshop on Measuring Components of Resilience in Long-term Ecological Datasets
The workshop is at Finse, high in the mountains between Bergen and Oslo. Along with debate about how ecosystem resilience can estimated from palaeoenvironmental data, and work to implement our ideas in R, I can promise there will be lots of snow, sauna and skiing. If you have size 39 feet, I can lend you some skis (other skis will be available). Northern lights are possible if the weather is good (we saw them last year). The food is excellent, and the train line to Finse from Bergen or Oslo is one of the most scenic anywhere.
There are still a few days left to apply. All travel within Norway (i.e. trains to Finse and back), food and accommodation at the Finse Research Station, is provided. Some funds are available to support travel of early-career researchers.
