IAPSO symposium at the IUGG 2015: deadline

Until January 31st it is possible to submit your abstract to the IAPSO Symposium P02 (IUGG General Assembly in Prague, from June 22nd to July 2nd 2015), P02 Physics and Biogeochemistry of Semi-Enclosed and Shelf Seas (http://www.iugg2015prague.com/iapso-symposia.htm).

P02 Physics and Biogeochemistry of Semi-Enclosed and Shelf Seas

Convener: Katrin Schroeder (Venice, Italy)

Co-conveners: Hans Burchard (Warnemuende, Germany), Lyudmila Demina (Moscow, Russia), Ken Ridgway (Hobart, Australia)

Description

This symposium will deal with the physics, the biogeochemistry and their interactions within marginal, semi-enclosed and shelf seas. These areas are often characterized by  complex stratified, mesoscale-dominated circulation influenced by variable bottom topography, atmospheric forcing, large evaporation, important river runoff, and tides to varying degrees. Given their limited geographical extension and their sometimes constricted connection to the open ocean, these environments often exhibit shorter timescales in their responses to external forcings: this is why they are widely recognized as natural “laboratories” for studying oceanic processes and interactions between the physical, biogeochemical and climatic spheres. Contributions on different regions are invited, related to themes such as innovative observational, theoretical, experimental and modeling studies of the hydrodynamics (e.g., waves, tides, currents, eddies, water mass distributions, mixing, budgets), transport of material (e.g. sediments, contaminants, trace metals, organic matter), marine biogeochemistry (e.g., nutrient dynamics, primary production, acidification, algae blooms) and air-sea interactions (e.g., fluxes of gases, momentum, heat and matter). Studies of past, present and future climate variability are welcome, as well as interdisciplinary studies on the bio-physical interactions in semi-enclosed and shelf seas.
