Biogeochemical and Ecological Change from Integrated, Multiscale Observations

Session ID#: 27851

Session Description:
Variations in ocean biogeochemistry and ecology are a product of numerous concurrent processes operating over a broad range of temporal and spatial scales. Given the prominent influence of interannual and decadal climate cycles, sustained, long-term observations are essential to differentiate natural variability from anthropogenic changes in marine biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems; this will improve our capacity of predicting ocean response to future changes and associated impacts on marine ecosystem services. Measurements of marine biogeochemical and ecological variables taken from multiple platforms greatly expand our spatiotemporal observing capacity. In situ time series from ships and autonomous assets (e.g., moorings, floats, gliders, etc.) represent one of the most valuable tools scientists have to characterize and quantify ocean carbon fluxes, biogeochemical and biological mesoscale and submesoscale processes, and their links to changing climate. Coupling in situ ocean measurements with remote sensing (satellites and airborne) observations that provide a more synoptic view of the ocean offers the unique opportunity to place in situ data sets at regional scales in a global context. This session will highlight research that couples biogeochemical and ecological observations from in situ and remote sensing platforms, with the aim of improved understanding of ocean change through a multiscale approach.
