Joint Seminar: Characterising the climate change response of marine ecosystems

Understanding how, where and when the marine ecosystem will respond to climate change is a pressing issue. In this talk, I will use output from IPCC models to explore the space and time scales of climate change response. I will first explore whether the current network of ocean observing stations is adequate to detect the impacts of climate change on ocean biogeochemistry. The time and space scales required to detect trends mean that the current observing network is found to be inadequate to detect climate change effects at the global scale. However, locally some effects are likely to be already detectable. In the second part of the talk, I will investigate further the time scales of climate change response and in particular the development of multiple coincident ecosystem stresses. I also investigate the influence that CO2 mitigation measures may have on the development of multiple stress.
