Collins Conference Room
Working Group

All day


Our campus is closed to the public for this event.

International scientific endeavors continue to coalesce around large-scale efforts in disentangling and understanding the complex, coupled biological-geophysical carbon cycle that structures climate change. Marine microorganisms, responsible for almost half of biological carbon fixation and oxygen production on Earth, drive critical fluxes of carbon and other elements between the atmosphere, ocean surface, and deep sea. This 3-day working group will partner with the NSF AccelNet BioGeoSCAPES international collaboration to host early career, ocean science researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and institutions to outline principles for conducting multidisciplinary oceanographic collaborations, outline a vision for priorities in international ocean science research efforts, and spark future collaborations among BioGeoSCAPES researchers and the SFI community concerning the complex systems questions of ecosystem function and resilience, metabolic and ecological theory, team science, and coupled fluid dynamical-biological systems. 

This event is supported by the National Science Foundation AccelNet 2201571 - Implementation: Development of an International Network for the Study of Ocean Metabolism and Nutrient Cycles on a Changing Planet (BioGeoSCAPES).

This working group is Co-organized by the inaugural cohort of BioGeoScapes Fellows.
