CT24C:
Significance of Photochemistry in Marine Biogeochemical Cycles Posters

Session ID#: 85259

Session Description:
Over the last 50 years, the field of marine photochemistry has progressed steadily toward an improved understanding of the significance that sunlight has on critical marine chemical processes. We now appreciate that photochemistry has the power to profoundly impact marine ecology, seawater redox state, the elemental cycles of metals, carbon, sulfur and nitrogen, as well as atmospheric processes through the photoproduction and consumption of volatile gases. Current knowledge of photochemical reactions occurring in the surface ocean span molecular to global scales. Advances ranging from high resolution MS and NMR technologies and novel trace element analysis, to new remote sensing capabilities and optical algorithms for modeling photochemical processes throughout the photic zone now bring us to a point that integrated approaches should allow rigorous spatial and temporal scaling of marine photochemical reactions.  This session solicits contributions that provide new data and novel approaches that will further advance our evaluation of the quantitative impact of photochemical reactions on local, regional, and global biogeochemical cycles.  Presentations covering the full complement of marine photochemical and photobiological studies (organic carbon, elemental, ROS, optical, ecological, and models) as they relate to impacts on all marine systems are welcome.
