ME34E:
What Are Long-Term Observations Teaching Us About Resilience of Marine Ecosystems? I Posters

Session ID#: 85092

Session Description:
Long-term studies are essential for understanding underlying processes driving productive marine ecosystems, with a cross-disciplinary approach necessary for discovering the environmental drivers that influence ecosystem function. Within the context of a changing ocean environment, long-term research provides a valuable framework for understanding ecosystem response to unpredictable events, long-term cycles and progressive directional change. This session seeks to highlight long-term cross-disciplinary studies that advance understanding of resilience, or lack thereof, in marine biomes. We invite submissions from coastal and pelagic ecosystem studies that rely on decadal-scale observations and/or modeling to reveal the processes influencing ecosystem function.
