  Information - BG3.02 Natural and human-induced hypoxia in the ocean (co-listed in OS)

Event Information
Oceanic anoxic events are a prominent feature of the marine sedimentary
record. Low-oxygen zones in the oceans have major ecological and
biogeochemical consequences that are poorly understood and often studied in
isolation from other conditions. The intensity, duration and frequency of
recent marine hypoxia are changing due to human-induced alteration of
coastal ecosystems (e.g., enhanced delivery of nutrients and/or organic
matter) and changes in oceanographic conditions potentially related to
global warming, climate variability and ocean circulation patterns. We
welcome contributions on the present and past occurrences of hypoxia in
marine environments.
