CASIX Final Science Meeting
Uncertainties of the Ocean Carbon Cycle: understanding changes in fluxes and ecosystems
2nd July 2008 | The Geological Society, Piccadilly London, UK
Recent research has highlighted how the ocean's ability to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere may be changing. For the past five years the NERC Centre for observation of Air-Sea Interactions and Fluxes (CASIX) has been investigating ocean processes responsible for the air-sea exchange of CO2 to reduce uncertainties in our understanding. This meeting presented the latest results to those with an interest in Earth system & climate science, climate and energy policy and carbon mitigation strategies.
09:30-10:00 Coffee & Registration
11:45-12:15 Observations of atmospheric CO2 from space (Dr John Remedios, U. Leicester)
14:15-14:45 High-resolution modelling of CO2 exchange in European shelf waters (Dr Jason Holt, POL)
15:45-17:15 Discussion on how ocean carbon cycle research can be better used to guide and inform policy
This event was timed to coincide with the "The Breathing Ocean" exhibit at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition, organised by the UK Surface Ocean Lower Atmosphere Study (UK-SOLAS), CASIX and CarboOcean.
