Mapping the “invisible forest” and its role in carbon cycling in the Southern Ocean (Host: Adrian Marchetti) A key mechanism by which oceans absorb CO2 is the biological carbon pump, driven by plankton communities living in the sunlit layer of the oceans. Despite our current realization of the tremendous diversity that exists in these communities, we have little understanding of how this biodiversity influences the biological carbon pump. In this talk, I will present our current work in the Western Antarctica…

Extent and evolutionary significance of heritable variation in reef-building corals (Host: Sara Davies) Corals are excellent subjects for quantitative genetics: you can fragment the same colony into clonal replicates and expose them to various treatments, and generate thousands of offspring according to a desired crossing scheme to measure parental effects and even map quantitative trait loci. Our recent experiments along these lines brought several important insights. Individual colonies of the same coral species can differ by the expression of >25%…

Internal gravity waves and turbulence at rough, underwater topography (Hosted: Alberto Scotti) The oscillating tide over rough, underwater topography launches internal gravity waves, which propagate across long distances through non-uniform stratification, interact with oceanic currents and eddies, and reflect at boundaries before eventually dissipating. Internal waves can have large amplitude at depth, for instance order 300 m tall overturns recorded at Luzon Strait during the recent IWISE campaign, and are able to transport energy and nutrients into coastal waters as well…

Coral reefs as paleo-recorders of human impacts on coastal environments (Host: Justin Baumann) Coral reefs are treasure-troves of historical records. Individual coral skeletons themselves track changes in water quality and temperature, as well as the coral response to these changing environmental conditions. Meanwhile, changes in coral and benthic foraminifera communities, both responsive to environmental changes, are recorded in reefs themselves and reef sediments. By comparing changes on reefs with differing human-impact histories, we can assess how human activities affect coastal habitats…
