ED014:
Societal Applications of Deep-Ocean Observations


Session ID#: 27932

Session Description:
There is growing awareness of the dependence of humans on the deep ocean for a healthy planet. With this comes a need for observations that address deep-ocean roles in mitigation and adaptation to global change and inform environmental management and policy.  We invite talks that present examples of how deep-ocean observations are being or could be used to address societal needs.  We encourage presentations that address climate change detection and projection, deep-ocean spatial planning, impact assessment, fisheries management, marine genetic resources, waste disposal, contaminant and other societal issues. Examples from sustained deep-ocean observation programs, observatories, process studies, and exploration programs are encouraged.  Data generators, data users, regulators and policy makers are welcome to contribute.
