EP003:
Basin to global scale ocean transport, connectivity, and dispersal: interdisciplinary connections


Session ID#: 28707

Session Description:
Physical transport of water masses over basin to global scales exerts control on processes as varied as global overturning circulation to the dispersal and ecological connectivity of endangered species. Use of observational floats, drifters, and tagging, combined with Lagrangian numerical studies, have provided new insights in both physical and biological applications. We solicit abstracts exploring pathways of ocean currents and organisms within them to facilitate cross-disciplinary exchange. For example: transport drives production of deep and intermediate water masses, upwelling drives ventilation and nutrient delivery, dispersal is an important life history strategy for species spanning microbial organisms to top predators, physical transport and mixing can interact with organism behavior to exert a strong control on dispersal, demographic and genetic connectivity, seascape boundaries and biological patchiness. However, much uncertainty remains:  in the pathways of water masses important to global ocean dynamics, in the details of the biological interactions with these currents, natural variability and climate change effects on these processes, with implications for biogeography and resilience of marine populations. Here we welcome modeling and observational studies of water transport, connectivity, and biological dispersal at the basin to global scale, as well as studies defining new metrics and providing theoretical insights.
