[A-OS03] Marine ecosystem and biogeochemical cycles: theory, observation and modeling

Mon. May 23, 2016 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall HALL6)

Convener:*Shin-ichi Ito(Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, The University of Tokyo), Takafumi Hirata(Faculty of Environmental Earth Science, Hokkaido University), Eileen E. Hofmann(Old Dominion University), Charles Stock(Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory)

The ocean surface occupies 70% of the earth's surface and supports large and diverse ecosystems, which change in response to climate and human-induced drivers and stressors. Understanding potential changes in marine ecosystems requires knowledge of the biogeochemical cycles and their coupling with ecosystem and circulation processes. The complexity of marine ecosystems requires research that integrates in situ, laboratory, and satellite observations with numerical modeling over a wide range of space and time scales. Thus, interdisciplinary marine biogeochemical and ecosystem studies are integral components of earth system sciences. This session aims to introduce the latest advances in interdisciplinary marine biogeochemical and ecosystem studies, highlight their role in earth system science and communication and collaboration among scientists from a range of disciplines.
