OB14A:
Benthic and Bentho-Pelagic Community Connectivity from Coastal to Deep-Ocean Environments II Posters

Session ID#: 92709

Session Description:
The water column just above the seafloor is a zone of unique importance for processes in the ocean that connect the pelagic and benthic realms such as energy flux, carbon sequestration, larval transport and settlement, and fisheries production. Despite the numerous processes that occur at this interface, historically bentho-pelagic interactions were often overlooked by researchers traditionally studying either benthic or pelagic ecosystems. Recent studies are highlighting the structure of these interface communities and elucidating the important ways in which benthic and pelagic processes and food webs are connected. This session focuses on novel observations and findings at the benthic boundary layer and the innovative technologies used to study bentho-pelagic interactions. To highlight recent advances, particularly in remote and deep (>200 m) environments, this multidisciplinary session aims to bring together scientists working to understand and characterize bentho-pelagic interactions from coastal to deep environments, from micro- to macro- scales, and across disciplines. Submissions on unexpected observations, such as those made by exploratory remotely operated vehicle surveys, are encouraged. We also welcome presentations on how bentho-pelagic interactions may be affected by anthropogenic stressors including climate change, fisheries pressure, critical minerals mining, and plastic pollution.
