Oceans play a vital role in the global carbon cycle by acting as a sink for the atmospheric CO2. On the other hand, global warming and ocean acidi­cation has a profound effect on marine organisms and the integrity and function of marine ecosystems. In this fi­rst summer course of this series, we will focus on the microbial food web dynamics under changing climates. Both experimental and modeling approaches will be covered.
