Our research themes & Forums will showcase the breadth of SAGES research.

All sessions to lead with invited “Keynote” cross-sectoral, interdisciplinary presentations.

Session information

Coming soon

Theme 2 & Source to Sea Carbon Forum – Carbon
Coming soon

Theme 3, CESD, FIORD Forum & Validate Forum – Earth Systems: Ice, Land, Ocean & Atmosphere

Scientific evidence needs to remain at the core of government decisions on the environment and climate change. SAGES had an important presence at COP26, presenting our best understanding about how the Earth functions and is responding to increasing temperatures, and has a strong profile across national and international science and policy settings. This session will examine the breadth of earth system science in the SAGES community through observation to integrated and modelling studies of the complexities of the highly-coupled ice-land-ocean-atmosphere system. Investigations may range from focussed single discipline approaches investigating specific processes through to integrated studies that link the complex systems of Earth. The session welcomes all contributions, from those having a fundamental science focus, to those with more direct societal and policy implications at local, national, regional or international level – these could relate to communities, Scottish Government policies, European directives or Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports.
