Dear Isogeochem listserv,
I would like to bring to your attention to a session planned for the Fall
AGU Meeting (December 10-14). Please feel free to forward this to any
one (particularly graduate students) you think maybe interested.
Abstract submission is September 6th.
B15: Nearshore Biogeochemical Processes: Transformation and Flow of
Nutrients in Aquatic Systems
Nearshore environments represent a dynamic transition between systems with
different physiochemical and biological characteristics. Some of these
environments are tidal, where several parameters including temperature,
oxygen concentration, biologically mediated processes change dramatically
over the course of the day. Other nearshore environments, such as those on
the continental slope, experience more stable conditions, with seasonal
fluxes in nutrient availability and temperature. In this session, we
encourage discussions on the biogeochemical cycling/transformation of
nutrient species (e.g., C, N, metals, etc...) in marine and freshwater
nearshore environments. Of particular interest are 1) biologically mediated
processes including the role of meio- and macro- fauna in nutrient
flow/cycling 2) bacterially mediated reduction/oxidation processes and 3)
dynamic transition zones through which materials are transformed as they
