Modelling the response of marine ecosystems to increasing levels of CO2

Workshop, February 13-15, 2007, Plymouth UK

Scope of the workshop

The high CO2 workshop will focus on biogeochemical changes and ecosystem functionality (such as production, nutrient cycling and community structure) in time scales of around 100-150 years. Acidification and changes to carbonate chemistry will be the main drivers under consideration but the workshop will also address the impacts caused by changes to mixing, stratification and nutrient supply due to climate change. Consideration of ocean carbon cycling in the long term and temperature driven species extinctions or invasions will probably be more peripheral to this workshop. The workshop will encompass both shelf and oceanic waters and consider both pelagic and benthic systems, calcifiers and non-calcifiers and the range of trophic levels.
