“Past and Present Ocean Productivity”, 2015 Aquatic Sciences Meeting, 22-27 February 2015, Granada, Spain

The abstract submission deadline is 23:59 U.S. Central Daylight Time on Friday, 10 October 2014.

Variability in primary production and carbon export fluxes play a major role in carbon cycling. At present primary productivity is dramatically affected by ocean warming, changes in ocean circulation and ocean acidification. Constraining ocean responses to global changes at present time also involves further understanding of past changes. Productivity reconstructions are essential to understand the diverse factors affecting primary production in present and past oceans. Over the past decades, substantial efforts were deployed to such reconstructions and a large amount of data on export production in the past oceans has been produced. However, reliable paleoreconstructions require further research in particular regarding the use of proxies. This session aims to address present and past productivity as well as reconstructions at different time scales, including proxies for reconstructing past ocean conditions.
