CP23A:
Human Populations and Influences in the Coastal Zone: Effects on Ocean and Human Health (OHH) II

Session ID#: 92817

Session Description:
About 40% of the world’s population lives within 100 km of the coast generating unprecedented levels of interaction among people, microbial and algal assemblages, and natural and built environments. Population growth and increasing nutrient and pollutant discharges, coupled with increasing ocean temperatures, changing rainfall patterns, acidification, and rising sea levels will only exacerbate impacts of human activities on water quality, coastal ecosystems, aquaculture, fisheries, ecosystem function, and human health. Understanding the interplay of complex ecological, microbiological, biogeochemical, and nearshore oceanographic and hydrologic processes is necessary to mitigate the impact of human influence in the ocean, and determine risks for human health and well-being. Dramatic advances have been made in molecular and genomic methods, biogeochemical processes, and in situ and autonomous sampling and analysis. However, there is need for multi-disciplinary efforts to address linkages across scales, space, and approaches.

This session invites submissions that explore impacts of human activities and climate change on coastal marine and Great Lakes ecosystems, focusing on areas which affect human and animal health (natural and anthropogenic risks), coastal recreational or commercial shellfish harvesting, ocean acidification, nutrient discharge, impacts on aquaculture and ecosystem function, and algal blooms, fish kills, shellfish pathology, and other kinds of wildlife disease. Of particular interest are topics that involve integrated approaches combining cutting edge quantitative techniques, water movement, loading and flux assessments, novel modeling approaches, mechanisms of toxicity, and active stakeholder and community engagement that promotes a broader impact of the science and dissemination of research findings.
