2012 ASLO meeting, Lake Biwa, Shiga, Japan

Dear colleagues,

We would like to bring your attention to our 2012 ASLO session in July 8-13, Lake Biwa, Shiga, Japan:

SS46: THE MULTI-SCALE CLIMATIC INFLUENCE ON THE MARINE ECOSYSTEM AND ITS ASSOCIATED PHYSICAL AND DYNAMICAL FORCING

Multi-scale climate effects on the marine ecosystem have been well recognized and continue to be critical as the observational period gets longer. A typical example is the strong linkage between several different climate indices and the fluctuation of long-term fish population (or fish recruitment) through the ocean circulation, which is forced by the global climate variability. In order to better understand the ecosystem response to climate impacts, the physical and oceanographic linkage plays a pivot role and the complex ocean-atmospheric interaction is never negligible. More important of all, different marine ecosystem may response differently at different time scales, ranging from daily to multi-decadal variability. This session invites all contributions from, but not limited to, the climate variability and their linkage of marine ecosystem as well as the observation, experimentation, and modelling approaches. The physical and ecological processes that structure the variability of marine ecosystems are also emphasized.

We encourage those interested to visit the session description at:
http://aslo.org/japan2012/special_sessions.html (search for SS46) and submit an abstract to the session. The submission deadline is the 1st of March 2012. Please also feel free to forward this email to interested colleagues.
Best regards,

Yu-Heng Tseng, Takeshi Okunishi, Yu-San Han and Bo Qiu (Session Conveners)
