About the Congress

The uniqueness of the Mediterranean Sea is due to its geodynamic evolution. The convergence of European and African plates has formed a semi-enclosed basin with particular features (e.g. having a negative hydrological budget and thus being an unstable biogeochemical paleo-environment) suitable as a multidisciplinary laboratory. Furthermore, besides its long and complex geological history, during the late Holocene has fashioned a unique cradle of civilisation.

The Mediterranean Basin encompasses a large number of different environments/ecosystems where complex physical, chemical and biological processes take place that have a strong impact not only to the adjacent areas but on a global scale as well. Main goal of this conference is to highlight the function of all these processes, their impact on the evolution of the Mediterranean Sea and, consequently, the global environmental response.
