  Information - NP3.01 Scale, scaling and nonlinear variability in aquatic biogeosytems (co-listed in BG & OS)

Event Information
Geophysical fields generally display high variability on a wide range of scales, which is associated with an underlying nonlinear variability and complex coupling between fields and scales. In this framework, this session will consider scaling and nonlinear aspects of physical, biological, chemical fields in the aquatic environment, and their couplings. The sessions welcomes experimental studies, theoretical explanations, statistical modelling papers, as well as nonlinear, scaling, fractal, multifractal, extreme events frameworks.

Specific topics include, for example, scaling, fractal and nonlinear variability studies of:
- Time series analysis: from monitoring networks, long term biological time series, high frequency measurements.
- Spatial variability: heterogeneity and patchiness of aquatic biogeochemical fields.
- Physical-chemical or physical-biological couplings and their regimes.
- Turbulence-plankton couplings: copepod swimming behaviour, blooms, marine snow formation.
- Animal behaviour and its coupling with marine environmental variability.
- Biodiversity: rank-abundance scaling properties and species-area relations.
