This session will take place at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly, which will run from 8-13 April 2018. In recent editions of the Assembly, this particular event has proven to be a valuable way for researchers to meet and make collaborations with each other. Those interested in contributing can do so across a wide variety of topics. Some of these include, but are not limited to, the cycling of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and other macro-/micro-nutrients in the ocean, as well as the exploration of innovative approaches for model-data fusion.
The overall aim of this session is to bring together researchers from a wide array of different disciplines, who use different research techniques, as well as different observaiton techniques, in the hopes of leading to innovative collaborative research in the future. This, combined with the synthesis of the different researchers modelling approaches, will lead to further improvement of understanding the biological carbon-pump, the biogeochemical cycles in the ocean, their connections to ecosystems and climate, as well as the development of operational applications.
