1 BRAIN-be Belgian Research Action through Interdisciplinary Networks

2 4 Decades of Belgian Marine Monitoring: Uplifting historical data to today’s needs BRAIN-be Axis 3 – Cultural, historical and scientific heritage Federal heritage resulting from marine scientific expeditions Paper, excell-files, cruise reports,.. Scattered availability Kick-off 4DEMON, RBINS, 13 March 2014

10 Established 1996 Research themes (1)Biology & evolution unicellular eukaryotes (protists) (2)Short- and longterm dynamics of freshwater and marine ecosystems (3)Microalgal biotechnology e.g. biotic interactions in microbial food webs (e.g. microalgae-bacteria, grazing), dynamics of estuarine and marine microplankton and microphytobenthos communities, diversity ecosystem function relationships, role of dispersal and local adaptation for spatial and temporal dynamics microlagal populations, diatom cell and life cycles Protistologie & Aquatische Ecologie

11 Persons involved in 4DEMON PhD student Anja Nohe [April 1st onwards, VLIZ (1/2 yr) & PAE (31/2 yrs)] Koen Sabbe Protistologie & Aquatische Ecologie

12 Chemical Oceanography Unit of the University of Liège Kick-off 4DEMON, RBINS, 13 March 2014 Number of permanent researchers2 Number of Ph-D thesis defended6 Number of Ph-D students5 Number of post-doctoral researchers3 Number of technicians and/or logisticians 2 Research topics : Aquatic biogeochemistry with strong focus on greenhouse gases (CO 2, CH 4, N 2 O) and other climate gases (DMS) Full range of aquatic systems : -rivers and lakes -Estuaries -Continental shelves -Open ocean -Antarctic and Arctic seaice

13 Chemical Oceanography Unit of the University of Liège Kick-off 4DEMON, RBINS, 13 March 2014 As been involved in ocean acidification : Frankignoulle and Gattuso papers the 1990’s papers highlighted the negative effects of ocean acification on coral reef calcification Delille et al. (2005) paper reports one of the first large scale multidisciplinary mesocom experiments looking into ocean acidification effects on pelagic comunities Borges & Gypens (2010) paper highlights for the first time specific evolution of ocean acidification in coastal environments
