Ocean acidification addressed at the Benguela Symposium 2016, Cape Town , South Africa, 15-18 November 2016

Session 1 – Upwelling systems as natural laboratories for global change: Environmental conditions

Upwelling systems could serve as natural laboratories for studies on the effects of these stressors. The current or natural environmental conditions in the Benguela system (and other coastal upwelling systems) with regard to ocean acidification, ocean deoxygenation (hypoxia), and eutrophication already now exceed most of the future scenarios predicted for other parts of the world ocean under global change. What we learn from events in the Benguela and how remotely-driven environmental changes affect organisms and interactions between them, can provide insight into links between biotic and abiotic elements.
