Session 6. Climate change in the seasonal domain: Impacts on the phenology of marine ecosystems and their consequences

Mark Payne (Technical University of Denmark, Denmark)
Rubao Ji (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, USA)

Plenary Speaker:
Lynda Chambers (Bureau of Meteorology, Phillip Island Nature Parks, Australia)

Invited Speaker:
Sanae Chiba (Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, Japan)

The impacts of climate change on the timing of seasonal events (phenology) is well documented in terrestrial ecosystems. However, the challenges associated with observing life in the ocean have greatly limited our ability to understand the corresponding impacts on marine ecosystems. Nevertheless, changes in phenology in the ocean are inevitable and can potentially have consequences across multiple trophic levels (e.g., via the match-mismatch hypothesis). This session will: (1) enable new results to be presented across multiple trophic levels; (2) allow researchers to exchange methods to study phenology based on limited marine data sets; and (3) attempt to draw together our understanding of climate change impacts in the seasonal domain.
