Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Workshop 2008
MetadataShow full item record
The focus of this year’s workshop was on the following interdisciplinary themes: Climate sensitivity of ecosystem structure and associated impacts on biogeochemical cycles Implications of climate variability and climate change for ocean biogeochemistry and benthic and pelagic ecosystems covering all trophic levels. Carbon uptake and storage Recent observational and modeling findings quantifying the magnitude and trends in ocean carbon fluxes and carbon storage. Temporal trends in ecosystem variability Application of ocean time-series data to characterize ecosystem response to varying climatic and biogeochemical boundary conditions. The session will include both modern and paleo-time-series in order to place the trends over the past century and future trends in a broader temporal context.
