EGU IMBER/SOLAS special session.

Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to Session OS 3.1, entitled “IMBER/SOLAS
special session. Sensitivity of marine ecosystems and biogeochemical
cycles to global change” and ask you to consider submitting an
abstract for oral and/or poster presentation. The session will be held
at the EGU annual meeting in Vienna, April 07-12 2013.

Abstracts are due on 9 January 2013

IMBER/SOLAS special session: sensitivity of marine ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles to global change

Achieving a quantitative understanding of how marine biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems interact is a prerequisite to understand how this coupled system affects and is affected by climate and environmental change. Indeed attempts to predict the future global environment depend on a comprehensive understanding of how plankton biodiversity and biogeochemical cycling in the oceans affect the climate system, and of how changes in climate influence the structure and functional properties of oceanic ecosystems. This IMBER / SOLAS session calls for contributions related to experimental work at sea or in the laboratory, and modelling and remote sensing studies on the responses of key marine biogeochemical cycles, ecosystems and their interactions, to global change. Contributions dealing with exchange processes at the air-sea interface are also welcome.
