CWE Symposium: "Future of aquatic carbon: impacts, feedbacks and mitigation"

Date: 17 November 2017
Location: Netherlands Institute of Ecology, Wageningen

The global carbon cycle is changing at an unprecedented rate, with a wide range of consequences for aquatic ecosystems. For instance, primary producers may benefit from higher levels of CO2 while ocean acidification may hamper calcification in marine organisms. Furthermore, changes in wetland functioning may feedback on global carbon cycling with shifts in greenhouse gas emissions accelerating or buffering climate change. This CWE symposium brings together research on different components of the carbon cycle in both inland and marine systems, aiming to present a comprehensive overview on the future of carbon in aquatic ecosystems.
