Organizers invite session abstracts for the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) 2019 Aquatic Sciences Meeting.

ASLO is offering two sessions that will highlight Arctic research. These sessions include SS16: Changing Biogeochemistry and Ecology across Arctic Aquatic Systems in the 21st Century and CS36: Arctic Ecosystems.

Session SS16: Changing Biogeochemistry and Ecology across Arctic Aquatic Systems in the 21st Century, will emphasize changes in the biogeochemistry and ecology of Arctic waters. Potential topic areas for this session may include nutrient, carbon, and toxin dynamics, including the release, transport, and transformation of biogeochemical constituents across the Arctic aquatic continuum, changing food web dynamics, and ecosystem function, as well as changing physical processes related to altered temperature and ice cover regimes. Studies across gradients and land-water interfaces are encouraged. Reviews, secondary analyses, and meta-analyses taking a comparative approach across Arctic systems are also welcome.

Session CS36: Arctic Ecosystems will provide a platform for sharing results from a wider range of physical, chemical, and biological studies of aquatic systems at high northern latitudes.

These sessions are being jointly organized and chaired to create a diverse lineup of presentations from the Arctic research community, and will form the seed of a 2021 special Arctic-oriented issue in Limnology & Oceanography.

Abstract submission deadline: 22 October 2018.
