Oceanography and ecosystems: how are we advancing understanding of the linkages? How are oceanographic products progressing marine environmental management?
Ecosystem dynamics depend strongly on background oceanographic processes but, despite continued advances in our understanding of such relationships, incorporating this knowledge into management remains difficult. Current oceanographic products are achieving a level of maturity that should allow their use for science-based decision-making.
This theme session brings together oceanographers and marine ecosystem scientists to advance our knowledge on physical-biological linkages in a changing ocean. The session welcomes both oceanography-oriented contributions as well as studies of physical-biological relationships. Examples of topics where contributions are welcome are:
While the session is focused on the North Atlantic, global ocean or theoretical contributions also welcomed.
