International Workshop of Climate Change and Ocean Carbon - Field Observation, Remote Sensing and Modeling

Event Date: 
April 3rd, 2011 to April 4th, 2011
Xiamen University, Xiamen, China

Climate Change and Ocean Carbon - Field Observation, Remote Sensing and Modeling - A Joint International Workshop of OCCOS and CHOICE-C will be held on April 3-4 of 2011 in Xiamen, China. The flyer of the first announcement of the workshop could be downloaded here.

Joint Workshop Themes
Day 1 (April 3)
Theme 1: The Ocean & Climate Change
Session 1: Climate Changes Update
Session 2: The Ocean's Role-Response and Feedbacks
Session 3: Meridional Overturning Circulation and Climate
Session 4: Remote Sensing of Air-Sea Interactions and the Ocean Interior
Theme 2: Observing Carbon from Space

Day 2 (April 4)
Theme 3: Coastal Carbon & Ocean Acidification
Session 1: Air-sea CO2 fluxes in coastal ocean – in situ measurements and remote sensing
Session 2: Biological pump and coastal carbon cycling – from land input, primary production, community structure, and export production and carbon burial
Session 3: Ocean acidification – from paleorecord to ecological effect
Session 4: Continental Shelf Pump – from dynamic to carbon transport?
