Climate change and human activity has influence coastal global oceans which may has an effect to the shifting in the composition of pelagic and benthic community. A major challenge to marine science is to discern how marine biota will respond to the environmental disruption caused by climate change and eutrophication. However, much research to date has focused on ecological responses of individual species to rising temperature over short time scale. Thus, marine lakes can be used as a model to predict about the marine biota adaptation in the reef as well as to study consequences and mitigation of future coastal perturbations.
We provide a disciplinary and multidisciplinary research programme aimed at advanced understanding of environmental problems and advanced training of PhD candidates in this field.
