Abstract submission deadline: 15 February 2018
May 8-10, 2018, Qingdao, China
The 3rd Open Science Symposium on Western Pacific Ocean Circulation and Climate (3rd OSS-2018) will be held on May 8-10, 2018 in Qingdao, China. This will provide a forum for oceanographers, meteorologists and climate scientists to exchange recent progresses in their study of the WPO circulation and climate and its generality/difference with other oceans, marine biogeochemistry and ecosystem, their variability, changes and impacts, to explore opportunities for international scientific collaboration, and to promote inter-disciplinary study in the WPO.
Session 5 is particularly relevant for the OA community.
Session 5: WPO’s role in and impacts on carbon cycle, biogeochemical process, acidification, ecosystem, paleo-oceanography, and so on
Chair: DAI, Minhan Xiamen University, China; CHAI, Fei SIO,SOA, China
(1) The biogeochemical and ecosystem processes notably carbon cycling and its coupling with ocean circulation in the NWP.
(2) The coupled physical-biogeochemical processes to better constrain the feedbacks of the NWP to regional/global climate changes.
(3) Perspectives on multidisciplinary observation and researches through better international networking and collaborations are also welcome.
