COST Action ES1308: Climate Change Manipulation Experiments in Terrestrial Ecosystems - Networking and Outreach (ClimMani)

OVERVIEW: Action COST ES1308 will develop a network for the experimental climate change research community brining experimentalists and modelers together in order to provide solutions to these recurrent challenges.
This Action will organise workshops addressing key challenges in climate change experiments and modeling, support research exchange, educate young scientists and facilitate better sharing and access to experimental data.
Also, it will provide added value to European climate change research by linking high level national research groups and projects to a supra-national level and provide strong links and interactions with the global research community.

COST Action ES1306: Connecting European connectivity research 

OVERVIEW: Successful prediction of pathways of storm runoff generation and associated soil erosion is of considerable societal importance, including off-site impacts such as water quality and the provision of related ecosystem services. Recently, the role of connectivity in controlling runoff and erosion has received significant and increasing scientific attention, though in a disparate and uncoordinated way. The key benefit of this Action is to establish connectivity as a research paradigm. The Action will then permit transfer of current understanding into useable science, by developing its conceptual basis and transferring it into a series of monitoring and modelling tools that will provide the platform for indices that will inform holistic management of catchment systems.
