The denudation of volcanic islands and its detrital record

Lessons from Cape Verde

Sala 1.1.37, Ciências ULisboa (com transmissão através de Videoconferência)

Por Pedro Dinis (University of Coimbra & Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre - MARE, Portugal).

Because basalts are among the most weathering vulnerable silicate rocks in the Earth and do not produce much sand, the geological record may be underrepresented in terms basalt-derived material. Soils and sediments collected from Cape Verde, an archipelago placed in a sub-tropical setting that includes islands of substantially different age, have been used to investigate the factors that control the denudation of volcanic islands, the sources for the sediments found in their shelves and the fate of the volcanic material. Basalt weathering is taking place rapidly in the “young” Fogo island, but their soils may already include a discernible exotic component, particularly in areas most exposed to dominant winds. The incorporation of biogenic material derived from the evolving shelves and detritus associated with the exhumation of basement units have a much larger influence on the composition of sediments from “old” islands, accounting for the prevalence of non-volcanic material in some fluvial and beach sands.

This talk will cover new methodologies of scientific visualization in high-performance computing systems specially designed for large scale scientific visualization that provide greater level of accuracy and detail.

This is the 11th edition of the Combinatorics Days, to be held online, Zoom platform, on the 21st and the 22nd of January.

Como é de conhecimento geral, assistimos atualmente a um rápido desenvolvimento nas formas de acesso à informação e publicação científica. O objetivo da jornada é fazer o ponto da situação na área da Matemática e discutir as perspetivas futuras.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

Understanding plant water relations at several scales under climate change is the theme of the XV Portuguese-Spanish Water relations Symposium: “Water relations under climate change: from genes to ecosystem”.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

Neste encontro, vamos descobrir as potencialidades da utilização do Jamboard - um quadro branco digital gratuito da Google - em trabalhos colaborativos.

Nesta formação, aprenderemos a criar apresentações dentro do Mentimeter, a criar diferentes tipos de slides e a selecionar as configurações mais adequadas aos objetivos pedagógicos.

Nesta formação, iremos abordar as diferentes etapas do processo de planificação de unidades curriculares e refletir conjuntamente em boas práticas sustentadas pela investigação.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

O evento pretende juntar técnicos, investigadores, estudantes, produtores, industriais e demais agentes da fileira, contribuindo para a atualização de dados sobre o setor e a partilha de conhecimentos sobre as potencialidades da flora portuguesa, para além, das condições edafoclimáticas nacionais que potenciam produtos de elevada qualidade.

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.

Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge – and that can be achieved for example by a conscious use of the communication tools at their disposal and a better articulation with journalists, among other means.

This course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

This course aims at providing students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. It also includes an introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software. These will include all steps of a research project, from the optimal sampling of communities to process inference from large-scale patterns of taxon, phylogenetic and functional diversity.

This course aims to walk through the grounds of modern botany studies, covering subjects that have been excluded from most academic curricula.
