BN007:
Biogeochemistry and Nutrients in open ocean waters: Sustainable Ocean Observations and Time Series Efforts.


Session ID#: 27810

Session Description:
Global biogeochemical cycles of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and phosphorus in the world's oceans are being significantly altered by both the direct and indirect impacts of human activities. To accurately observe these changes in both upper and deep ocean waters requires sustained programs of ocean observations and time-series efforts. For accurate global observations of global changes it is critically important to be able to reliably compare results from different laboratories with well-quantified confidence. The now common use of Certified Reference Material (CRMs) for inorganic carbon has significantly increased the consistency of observations, and the community is now seeking wider use of CRMs for other biogeochemical ocean variables.

We welcome session contributions: Addressing open ocean biogeochemical observations with a focus on carbon, oxygen and dissolved nutrients (N, P, Si); and reporting spatial and temporal dynamics and trends of ocean biogeochemical variables, in particular through the use of certified reference materials (CRM’s) for studies of biogeochemical processes; as well as synthesis and modelling studies of these biogeochemical processes, including those using global data sets such as SOCAT and GLODAP.
