The objective of the Global Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics Programme (GLOBEC) programme is to understand how global change will affect the abundance, diversity and productivity of populations of marine organisms comprising a major component of oceanic ecosystems. The aim of GLOBEC is to advance our understanding of the structure and functioning of the global ocean ecosystem, its major subsystems, and its response to physical forcing so that a capability can be developed to forecast the responses of the marine ecosystem to global change. This program has projects on Small Pelagic Fishes and Climate Change, Climate Impacts on Oceanic Top Predators, Cod and Climate Change, Climate Change and Carrying Capacity, and Basin-Scale Ecosystem Modelling.
