OB43C:
Toward BioGeoSCAPES: Exploring Molecular Drivers of Ocean Metabolism and Biogeochemistry I

Session ID#: 93195

Session Description:
BioGeoSCAPES has been proposed as an idea for a new international coordinated research program to integrate knowledge on organism identity and physiology within frameworks of community ecology and global ocean biogeochemistry. It is envisioned that an improved, predictive, and quantitative understanding of ocean metabolism can be developed by combining detailed information on cell status, biochemical processes, and species interactions with intercalibrated measurements of nutrient fluxes and concentrations. We invite contributions describing research that can serve as inspiration for this nascent program. Appropriate abstracts could include: studies that integrate molecular and biogeochemical measurements, including fluxes; research that places ‘omics observations (e.g., genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic, metallomic, lipidomic, etc.) within quantitative numerical modeling frameworks; or studies that scale from the cellular to the ecosystem level through integrated field measurements or mechanistic models of interactions. The aim of this session is to highlight research that combines informatics, modeling, and biogeochemical measurements across scales of time and space, to test, integrate, connect, and expand upon studies of ocean ecology and metabolism.
