CD003:
Changes in Community Composition, Phenology, Ecosystem Productivity, and Carbon Cycling from the Land-Ocean Interface to the Continental Margin


Session ID#: 27887

Session Description:
Broad-scale climate changes coupled with localized human pressures in both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems impact habitat suitability, water quality, and ecosystem services in coastal environments. These stressors interact to affect phenology, biotic composition, biodiversity, and carbon fluxes, which can drive dramatic changes in the biogeochemistry and productivity of estuarine, coastal ocean, and continental shelf systems. Studies combining modeling and observations are necessary to assess climate change impacts on ecosystem properties and to better understand the complicated ecological interactions in coastal environments. This session will provide a venue for evaluating the current understanding of these changing ecosystems and the related biogeochemical interactions along the land-ocean interface. We invite contributions that explore observed and modeled changes in coastal ecosystem processes related to climate change signals (temperature and precipitation changes, extreme events, coastal acidification) and local anthropogenic drivers (eutrophication, urbanization, land-use/land-cover changes). We specifically encourage presentations combining in situ data with remote sensing and numerical modeling analyses, and studies linking impacts from terrestrial processes to changes in phenology, biotic composition, biodiversity, ecosystem production, and carbon fluxes. Studies focusing on different spatial scales (estuarine, coastal, continental shelf) and temporal periods (past, present, future) are welcome.
