ME34D:
Using Satellite Remote Sensing and in Situ Data to Evaluate Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystems III Posters

Session ID#: 84971

Session Description:
Marine ecosystems and the wildlife that characterizes them are essential to the overall health of the planet. They are a primary food source for many localities and drive many other aspects of the ocean economy.  Over 2,000 marine species are now endangered or threatened globally in coral reef, seagrass, mangrove, sea ice, deep sea corals, and pelagic and deep-sea habitats. Stressors include pollution, fishing gear entanglements, overfishing, acidification and a changing climate. New initiatives – in particular the Marine Biodiversity Observation Network that is working in partnership with the US Integrated Ocean Observing System, the Global Ocean Observing System, the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) and global partners including industry – are now making observations needed to conserve and manage marine resources to evaluate local marine biodiversity and health in a regional to global context. These data range from satellite remote sensing to animal tracking to a variety of “omics” approaches. Such data help improve monitoring and forecasting of the effects of stressors on marine biodiversity. They are fundamental for developing mitigation strategies.  Interdisciplinary projects that effectively combine remotely sensed and various types of in situ data to develop products and tools to enhance marine decision support and conservation are particularly encouraged.
