SI23A:
Ocean-Based Solutions to Address Local to Global Human Impacts I

Session ID#: 92995

Session Description:
The ocean is facing many anthropogenic pressures including ocean acidification, warming, sea level rise, deoxygenation, extreme events, eutrophication, plastic pollution, biodiversity loss, and habitat modification. Managing these pressures requires interdisciplinary science to develop practical solutions. This session seeks to bridge current scientific research with management, technological, and society-based solutions from local-to-global scales. We solicit submissions aimed at creating solutions for a range of ocean issues and integrate science within the engineering, management, and stakeholder spheres. Research topics include, but are not limited to: 

  1. Management of species vulnerability (e.g., assisted evolution or migration; role of MPAs; ecosystem restoration aimed at increasing resilience)
  2. Data-based adaptive management actions (e.g., model forecasting for adaptive management of fisheries; use of high-resolution upwelling, hypoxia, heat wave, and range shift forecasting; innovative data platforms for use by marine stakeholders)
  3. Local solutions that manage environmental conditions (e.g., remediation, mitigation of heat stress, acidification, hypoxia, pollution, eutrophication, etc.) 
  4. The ocean's role in COremoval (e.g., marine renewable energy; blue carbon)
