The net amount of CO2 that is taken up and stored by the ocean is a major driver of the rate of climate change but also affects biogeochemical stressors such as ocean acidification. Alongside the gradual increase in the ocean’s anthropogenic carbon inventory, the uptake, storage, and transformation of carbon display a large degree of spatial and temporal variability. In this session, we wish to shine a light on such trends and variability in ocean carbon dynamics, focusing on underlying processes and the consequences for marine ecosystems in the recent past, present, and future.
We are specifically interested in temporal changes in the fluxes and inventories of natural and anthropogenic inorganic carbon, as well as other marine carbonate system parameters, such as alkalinity, pCO2, and pH. We welcome contributions with a focus on the open or coastal ocean, surface, and/or ocean interior, based on observations, models, or theory and with a global or regional focus. Observational and multi-model constraints on marine carbon dynamics are particularly welcome, as are studies based on GLODAP or SOCAT data and insights from the recent Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6) simulations.
We are also organizing a Social Mixer in the evening after our session. You'll have the opportunity to meet up and connect with new and old peers from our field. You can have a picnic or sit by the beach or a campfire and talk about science and other things in themed and open sub-rooms on GatherTown.
Please mark April 27th from 6 pm to 7 pm in your calendars for that.

How to access OS3.1
Session OS3.1 runs as a vPICO session. Everybody, conveners/chair/speakers as well as attendees, join the live session page on EGU21. While attendees stay on this live session page and see the live presentations via stream, you as convener/chair/speaker are required to enter the BigBlueButton (BBB) live video chat to give your presentation.
Please keep the live session page open on this browser tab and join the BBB video chat in parallel on another browser tab through the button below. Your personal breakout text chat following the live presentations are linked from the live session page tab, not from the additional BBB video chat tab.Enter BBB video chat
