Exposição

Mar Mineral - Ciência e Recursos Naturais no Fundo do Mar

MUHNAC, Lisboa
MUHNAC

Estaremos dispostos a viver sem telemóvel, computador, pomadas anti-virais ou boa parte dos tratamentos anti-cancerigenos? E até turbinas eólicas outras energias verdes? Se não, então a curto prazo o mundo terá de iniciar uma nova exploração oceânica, mas desta vez ocorrerá nos fundos marinhos. As riquezas a explorar serão minerais, mas o seu valor é diferente daquele que conferimos ao ouro ou à prata, já que os recursos minerais que encontramos nos oceanos, como hidratos de gás, cobalto, e terras raras e ítrio, são essenciais no desenvolvimento de tecnologias que estão presentes no nosso dia-a-dia e sem as quais já não sabemos viver. A Europa está agora a avançar no desenvolvimento de tecnologia que permita explorar os fundos do mar através de uma mineração responsável e ambientalmente sustentável e Portugal pode, novamente, ter um papel importante na exploração oceânica. Prepare-se para descer ao fundo do mar com o MUHNAC na exposição Mar Mineral – Ciência e Recursos Naturais no Fundo do Mar.

17h30-20h00 (inauguração)

Objectives: Lack of fertile land to feed the exponentially growing population, insufficient water availability and quality, changes in the flow of nutrients through the bio-geo-cycles (especially N and P) and climate and land use changes are impacting ecosystem

Objectives: Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth.

Objectives: The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects. It aims at providing an integrated approach on urban socio-ecological systems.

Objectives: Citizen science can be part of the larger process of engaging people in new forms of interaction in scientific research, challenging scientists and citizens whilst enlarging scientific knowledge and providing learning opportunities for all part

Objectives: This course aims at: 1) exploring how scientists can use social media as tools to enhance the communication of their research and the dialogue with society, and 2) discussing the differences that exist in the work of scientists and journalists

Objectives: This course will teach how to apply the SWAT eco-hydrological model to assess the impacts of climate and associated changes on water-soil-plant interactions, and consequences to water resources, soil erosion and nutrient cycles.

Objectives: Provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

Objectives: Provide students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. Introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Objectives: This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software.

Objectives: This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Objectives: This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets.

Objectives: The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems.

Objectives: Acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools.

New date: 30 August - 03 September 2021.

This conference is the 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.
