We would like to let you know that a scientific discussion meeting on "Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world" will take place at the Royal Society of London, UK on 12-13 September 2016. This meeting will discuss the less obvious but important indirect impacts of climate change on the oceans. Increased stratification will affect ocean circulation and ventilation, and lead to reduced upwelling and deep water formation. This will reduce oxygenation through (still uncertain) interactions with biological production and remineralisation, with potential socio-economic consequences on fisheries and ecosystems.
The event is free but advance registration is essential (max capacity: 280).
Scientific discussion meeting is organised by John Shepherd (National Oceanography Centre, University of Southampton, UK), Andrew Watson (University of Exeter, UK), Andreas Oschlies (GEOMAR, Germany) and Peter Brewer (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, USA).
Schedule of talks
Session 1 - 09:05-12:30 - Fundamentals: oxygen and the ocean
Session 2 - 13:30-18:15 - Physical controls: circulation, mixing and ventilation
Session 3 - 09:05-12:30 - Biogeochemistry and anoxia
Session 4 - 13:30-17:00 - Whole system issues and impacts
