CD009:
Resolving Temporal (Hours-Days) and Spatial (100s m) Scales of Oceanographic Processes


Session ID#: 28366

Session Description:
Understanding regional- and global-scale variability in aquatic ecosystems requires resolution of processes occurring at high temporal frequencies and spatial scales. This is especially true in coastal regions where short-term physical forcings (e.g., sunlight, river discharge, meteorology, tides, etc.) combine to affect biological and biogeochemical processes. In the open ocean, processes such as vertical mixing, primary production, blooms, etc., vary at sub-diurnal to weekly timeframe. Coupled physical-biogeochemical models provide information from short- to long-term temporal scales and moderate (~km) to coarse (~hundreds km) spatial scales, but parameterization and evaluation of models requires field measurements and satellite data that are not typically available at short time scales. Furthermore, scaling-up observations across time and space to address broader regional or global topics (e.g., IPCC assessments) can lead to high uncertainties if the observations are not available at sufficient resolution. Papers addressing ecological, biogeochemical or physical processes including land-ocean and air-sea interactions that vary at high temporal frequency or spatial scales are welcomed. The breadth of studies of interest could include any of the following: field observations, modeling studies, or remote sensing data from airborne sensors and satellite platforms such as geostationary ocean color sensors, to span the temporal and spatial scales needed.
