ASLO Summer Meeting 2005

Location: Santiago de Compostela, Spain
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2005-06-19    
End Date: 2005-06-24

Event Description:
The call for abstracts to the ASLO 2005 Summer Meeting in Santiago de Compostela, Spain (June 19-24, 2005), has opened and is available on line, together with additional information on the meting at:

We encourage submissions from a broad geographic, thematic and instrumental range. The absolute abstract deadline is 1st February 2005, but it would be very helpful if prospective authors could notify the conveners well before that time.

MarBEF is sponsoring the ASLO meeting and there are several symposia at the meeting which are organised by MarBEF members. If MarBEF members are interested in participation in this and other symposia they can do so with financial support from MarBEF and under the usual conditions.

The following special sessions, of relevance to MARBEF, offer, among others, particularly relevant forum to present MARBEF results:

SS0? Carbon and carbonate fluxes in the coastal ocean: a tribute to Roland Wollast
Organizers: Jean-Pierre Gattuso (, Fred T. Mackenzie (
The role of the coastal ocean in the global carbon and carbonate cycles is disproportionately high considering its relatively small surface area (7% of the surface of the ocean). For example, it contributes 15-30% of the oceanic primary production and about 50% of the marine calcification. The aim of this session is to examine the factors explaining such high rates of activity and update our knowledge of global processes and fluxes involving carbon cycling in the coastal ocean, such as primary production, respiration, calcification/dissolution, air-sea CO2 fluxes, inputs from land, upwelling/onwelling, outputs to the open ocean and coupling to nitrogen and phosphorus cycles. Presentations based on process studies, modelling and data synthesis are welcome. This session is a tribute to the late Professor Roland Wollast who was one of the leading scientists recognizing the critical importance of the coastal ocean in the global biogeochemical cycles.

SS32 Diversity Among Components of the Microbial Loop
Organizer: John Dolan, Marine Microbial Ecology Group, Lab Oceanogr Villefranche, ( )
This session will be devoted to exploring patterns of diversity in planktonic microbes with the goal of establishing commonalities and differences. Free-living microbes have been described as having global distributions. The amount of genetic diversity among both prokaryotic and eukaryotic planktonic microbes (femto, pico and nano- sized organisms) presently being described should then soon reach a plateau? This is far from clear. Distinct patterns may exist for autotrophic prokaryotes compared to autotrophic eukaryotes. Contributions will ideally involve a variety of microbes from viruses (relations between bacterial and viral diversity) to Pico-autotrophs (prokaryotes & eukaryotes) to bacteriovores and herbivores.
