Coastal And Estuarine Research Federation 26th Biennial Conference
CERF at 50: Celebrating our Past, Charting our Future
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are escalating worldwide, recognized to be associated with nutrient pollution as well as climate change. Climate change is impacting HABs in complex ways, from warming of waters and increasing CO2, to altered stratification and changing precipitation patterns. These changes can act both synergistically and antagonistically with increasing eutrophication trends. This session will broadly assess climate-change impacts on physical, biogeochemical and physiological processes regulating HAB blooms in estuaries and coastal oceans by bringing together climate scientists, oceanographers, and ecologists. We solicit studies across a wide range of approaches, including retrospective data analysis, laboratory studies, and numerical modeling.
