The Coastal Biogeochemistry Workshop is listed as session BG3.1/OS3.6 of the 2018 EGU General Assembly.
The coastal ocean has been increasingly recognized as a dynamic component of the global carbon budget. This session aims at fostering the understanding of the roles of coastal environments and of exchange processes, both natural or perturbed, along the terrestrial / coastal sea / open ocean continuum in global biogeochemical cycles. During the session recent advancements in the field of coastal and shelf biogeochemistry will be discussed. Contributions focusing on carbon and nutrient and all other element's cycles in coastal, shelf and shelf break environments, both pelagic and sedimentary, are invited.
This session is multidisciplinary and is open to observational, modelling and theoretical studies in order to promote the dialogue. The session will comprise subsections focusing on the Arctic science (GEOTRACES and further programs) and on coastal carbon storage.
