Understanding Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic coastal ecosystems - 17th August

Date & Time: Saturday, 17th August, 09:00-18:00

Convenors: Humberto González, UACh-IDEAL, Bernd Krock, AWI-SubCob, Kerstin Jerosch, AWI-CoastCarb, Andrea Piñones, UACh-CoastCarb

Our intention is to foster a multi-disciplinary dialogue that merges genetic research, ecological investigations, and oceanography to decipher the complexity of Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic coastal ecosystems. With this session the IDEAL center, SubCob and CoastCarb community encourage contributions that span a broad scope of observation and modeling studies, encompassing genetic adaptations of organisms to extreme conditions, interactions among species, biogeochemical cycles, and the impact of environmental changes on these vulnerable ecosystems.

The session will include talks that delve into diverse aspects of Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic coastal observations and modeling. This includes studies on genetic diversity, species distributions, trophic dynamics, blue carbon, and the role of climate-driven variations on ecosystem structures. Collaboration will be key, as we plan to use this session as a platform for productive discussions and ideas exchange. By integrating cutting-edge research findings and collaborative insights, we hope to contribute to a more holistic comprehension of high-latitude coastal ecosystems and foster strategies for their preservation.
