PL003:
Biophysical dynamics of boundary upwelling systems in a changing ocean: Synthesis of current knowledge and future observational and modeling approaches


Session ID#: 27990

Session Description:
Boundary upwelling ecosystems (BUE) are known to play a significant role for ocean productivity and regulation of regional climate variability. The strong coupling between atmospheric forcing, ocean circulation, biogeochemical cycling, and fisheries have long motivated multidisciplinary studies that are now common in BUE. These ecosystems are increasingly vulnerable to the multiple effects caused by climate change, ocean acidification, deoxygenation, harvest of marine resources and coastal development.  In order to manage and predict these valuable ecosystems, new and evolving scientific approaches to the collection of information and modeling are required. In this session, we seek papers synthesizing current knowledge as well as advances in the development of new observational tools and modeling approaches for understanding the multi-faceted dynamics of BUE.
