OOS 26 - Special Series on Coupled Biogeochemical Cycles (2 of 3): Interactions Between CBC and Large-Scale Variations in Climate
This session is the second of three Organized Oral Sessions devoted to “Coupled Biogeochemical Cycles: Recent Success and future directions.”  This session looks at recent research which has examined how coupled biogeochemical cycles have responded or will respond in the future, to large-scale variation in climate with an eye to the effects of global change. The keynote talk in this group will be “Feedbacks of CBC to climate change on centennial time scales.” (speaker to be decided). With funding from NSF we (Jon Cole, Adrien Finzi and Inez Fung) propose this two-day organized oral session to explore the recent successes and future directions for research in coupled biogeochemical cycles. About 60-70 people will attend this workshop, including 12 invited speakers, 10 graduate students, 4 organizers and about 40 scientists (including some early-career) who have worked recently on CBC or allied fields. Many of the invitees will be PI’s who have received NSF funding through special programs in both DEB and GEO that supported research in biogeochemistry or coupled biogeochemical cycle. The product of the workshop will be a series of peer-reviewed papers in a major scientific journal in open-access mode. Funds to purchase open access are budgeted. These papers should be a valuable touchstone for assessing the current status, and more importantly, suggested future course for CBC research and its interaction with other fields. There will be three Organized Oral Sessions and an evening workshop. The workshop will consist of a panel discussion with audience participation to both summarize the status of knowledge and make specific recommendation as to how CBC research might be funded in the future.
