OB44H:
Seasonal Cycles of Ocean Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems Under a Changing Climate II Posters

Session ID#: 85131

Session Description:
It has long been known that seasonal cycles in biogeochemistry and ecosystems present some of the largest variations that can be observed.  However, only recently has it been identified that the seasonal cycles of ocean chemistry are changing significantly under anthropogenic forcing.  This is important not only for the uptake of carbon by the ocean but also for ecosystem stressors and ecosystems themselves, as they will be exposed to critical thresholds earlier in time under continued emissions. It has been also shown that parts of the uncertainties in future projections of ocean carbon uptake can be traced back to the skill of Earth system models in simulating the seasonal cycles of biogeochemical drivers.

This session welcomes studies that work with observational records and/or modeling tools to understand the mechanistic controls on seasonal variations in biogeochemistry and ecosystems. Studies that focus on the evaluation of models and show how and why seasonal cycles can be used as observational constraints for future projections are also invited.  Abstracts are particularly welcomed that focus on the interplay between biological/biogeochemical and physical processes, with scientific questions that range from the marine carbon cycle to fisheries.
