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. Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor John Shepherd CBE FRS, Professor Andrew Watson FRS, Professor Andreas Oschlies and Dr Peter Brewer.
This event is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend, but advance registration is essential.
