Session addressing ocean acidification at the Early Career Scientist Conference “Climate, oceans, and society challenges and opportunities”, 30 May – 2 June 2017, Busan, Korea

Deadline for abstract submission: 28 September 2016!

To encourage the participation of young scientists in international scientific investigations and to promote their involvement in the management and stewardship of the marine environment, the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) and the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) are co-organizing a conference for Early Career Scientists in Busan, Republic of Korea, in late-May-June.

Session title: “Climate change and the effects on the ocean”

Session description: Physical changes, such as temperature, precipitation and ice cover lead to altered water circulation and ocean chemical composition that can influence ocean ecosystems. This session will examine climate change impacts on marine physical, chemical and biological processes and their interactions. This topic seeks contributions exploring multiple stressors such as temperature rise, salinity changes, ocean acidification, deoxygenation and their effects on physiology, ecology, species distribution, population and ecosystem dynamics.
