UC Global | Issue 70

27 July 2017

A study in the Mondego estuary has shown that estuarine ecosystems cope well with a maximum temperature increase of 2 ° Celsius, values proposed by the Paris Agreement. The study, coordinated by researchers from the Centre for Functional Ecology of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra, reveals that there are no significant changes and the impact is reduced.

“Oh as casas as casas as casas”, a line and the title of a poem by Ruy Belo gives the motto for the 20th Cultural Week of the UC, which will take place in 2018. Project submissions are open until September 24th.
