Newcastle University hosted a technical symposium on Earth Systems Engineering on 3rd-5th July 2012. The focus of the symposium was on systems engineering for sustainable adaptation to global change and brought together a wide range of individuals who are applying Earth Systems Engineering (ESE) principles, to share their experiences.
We have a number of printed copies of the proceedings available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy. In the meantime please feel free to browse the presentations below or download an electronic copy of the proceedings.
A number of papers were selected for publication in a special issue of Engineering Sustainability, Vol 166, Issue 5 can be accessed here.
