ESSAS Annual Science Meeting, Yokohama, Japan, 7-9 March 2016

There are several sessions relevant to ocean acidification at the ESSAS Annual Science Meeting, Yokohama, Japan.

Dates: 7-9 March 2016

Yokohama World porters, Hall B, at Sakuragi-cho, Yokohama

Theme of meeting: “Scientific Challenges in a Changing Arctic & Subarctic”

The decline of biodiversity (the biomass, composition, and distribution of species) on Earth reflects the fact that the ability of Earth to sustain biodiversity in a dynamic environment has been seriously compromised by environmental stressors such as climate change and ocean acidification. Furthermore, the reduction of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean, which has progressed more rapidly than previously predicted, could exacerbate several environmental stresses, including ocean warming, acidification, and stratification. This meeting will focus on the observed and projected changes in the climate and marine environment of the Arctic and Subarctic and in the biological responses to these changes: How did the ancient climate and environment of the Arctic and its marginal subarctic regions change over time? How are the climate and environment of the subarctic and Arctic regions changing during the current Anthropocene? How do marine organisms in subarctic and polar regions respond to multiple environmental stressors? Active discussions will be encouraged to enhance our understanding of observed and anticipated changes and to explore how the natural sciences, humanities and socio-economic sciences can address and adapt to these challenges.
