The ocean accounts for about 50% of global net primary production. This production is significant for carbon cycling and ecosystem functioning, and is related directly or indirectly to a variety of climatic and ecological phenomena. The responses to natural and anthropogenic environmental stressors that influence marine production and diversity can cause perturbations to marine ecosystems that alter trophic dependencies and interactions among organisms at a range of space and time scales. Quantification of the principal mechanisms driving spatio-temporal variability of marine ecosystem remains to be done, especially in terms of evaluation of uncertainty in responses. As a result, evaluating vulnerability of marine ecosystems to environmental change requires systematic and holistic approaches that integrate physics to ecology and are based in observations and modelling. This session aims to provide a venue for discussing recent advances in understanding marine biogeochemical cycles, ecosystems and their interactions. Observational and modeling studies that consider linkages between biogeochemical and ecosystem processes, biodiversity and biogeochemistry, and the effects of multiple stressors are especially encouraged.
