ESE2012

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 richard.dawson@newcastle.ac.uk 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.
