PC24C:
Water Mass Analyses and Transformation for Ocean Physics, Biogeochemistry, and Climate Studies I Posters

Session ID#: 85110

Session Description:
The ocean's role in climate and ecosystems involves a rich tapestry of physical and biogeochemical processes. Quantification and simulation of these processes and their interplay is essential to reach a holistic understanding of past and future climate and ecosystem changes. To this end, it is vital that our community continues to build interdisciplinary research strategies.

This session is aimed to foster such strategies through applications of the water mass transformation framework. Water mass transformation has traditionally been used to analyze ocean overturning circulation, subduction and heat transport in both models and from observations. However, recent advances have also allowed for applications of this framework to understand climate variability, ventilation and to combine and understand the interplay between the overturning circulation and origin and faith of biogeochemical tracers. As such, the water mass transformation framework weaves together ocean dynamics, thermodynamics, biogeochemical processes, and interactions with the atmosphere, cryosphere and solid Earth.

We welcome any studies that utilize the water mass transformation framework to further our understanding of the ocean’s role in the climate system. We especially welcome frontier interdisciplinary applications that combine physics with biogeochemistry or analyze climate variability through water mass analyses.
