Multi-scale vertical and horizontal ocean mixing processes can strongly influence the distribution of dissolved and suspended substances including macro- and micro-nutrients, and may impact on the global carbon cycles. The changes in nutrient dynamics generally affect the abundance, composition and metabolic activity of marine organisms such as phytoplankton and bacteria during the bloom. Marine phytoplankton can produce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and marine atmospheric aerosols, which strongly influence on atmospheric chemistry. Primary and secondary organic and inorganic components produced via marine phytoplankton activity can contribute to the Earth's radiative forcing, and in turn marine ecosystems including biogeochemical processes directly or indirectly. Therefore, the biogeochemical cycles have a tight linkage between the ocean and the atmosphere. In order to understand physical, chemical and biological processes relevant to phytoplankton bloom formation in the ocean, dynamics of VOCs and marine aerosols in the atmosphere, and the biogeochemical linkage between the ocean and the atmosphere, we welcome new interdisciplinary presentations and active discussions on physical, chemical, and biological sciences both from ocean and atmospheric fields in this session. Studies linked to the Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) project are good examples, but other related studies are also invited.
