“Upwelling systems under climate change” – AGU Fall Meeting, San Francisco, 12-16 December 2016

Deadline for abstract submission: 3 August 2016!

Session description

Upwelling systems concentrate marine resources and productivity, sustain marine biodiversity and support dependent human communities. Upwelling systems are attractors to highly migratory species, they respond to shifting environmental drivers that result from climate change, resulting in warming temperatures, increased stratification, lower oxygen and pH levels, and changes in phenology. These responses are manifested in shifts in timing and location of upwelling centers, biogeochemical characteristics, and the dependency of local human communities. This session is intended to synthesize current research on upwelling systems, their physical drivers and socio-economic responses. Contributions that consider future climate scenarios and provide end-to-end integration are especially encouraged.

Primary Convener: Eileen E Hofmann, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, United States
