McKee 1. Introduction Approximately 87% of Earth's land surface is connected to
the ocean by rivers (Ludwig and Probst 1998). Rivers are the active interface
between terrestrial and oceanic environments, providing connectivity between
the two largest global sinks for atmospheric CO2 (Cai 2011). The annual flux of
carbon from rivers ...

New optical, radiotracer and molecular methods showed that earlier methods
had missed most of the micro- bial biomass, activity and diversity, and that
microbes constitute the dominant biological force in shaping the ocean's
biogeochemical dynamics. As a result of these discoveries, marine microbiology,
long considered a fringe discipline, has emerged as arguably the most exciting
and dynamic field of oceanography. No serious study of marine ecosystems
today would exclude ...

Although there have been significant advances in our ability to describe and
model the oceanic environment, our understanding of the physical,
biogeochemical, and ecological dynamics of the Indian Ocean is still rudimentary
in many respects. This is partly because the Indian Ocean remains substantially
under sampled, in both space and time, compared to the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans. The situation is compounded by the Indian Ocean being a dynamically
complex and highly ...

... research strategies for each of the five priorities identified in the committee's
1988 report (water-energy-vegetation interactions, fluxes of materials between
terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere and oceans, biogeochemical
dynamics of ocean interactions with climate, earth system history and modeling,
and human interactions with global change). The reports from these working
groups were used by the committee as inputs to the five chapters on focused
studies in this report.

Numerical models are required to integrate the observations into a dynamic
modeling framework in order to allow us to test hypotheses on coastal dynamics.
The status of modeling ocean processes has progressed rapidly in the last
decade due to the increase in computer technologies; improved methods in
computational fluid dynamics; improved knowledge in ocean circulation and
biogeochemical dynamics; and, a large increase in the availability of remotely
sensed data for model ...

Because of the topographic complexity, smaller time/ space scales, and specific
regional character of coastal environments, basin to global scale models typically
do not fully account for biogeochemical fluxes and dynamics on continental
margins and in the coastal ocean. Thus coastal/open-ocean exchange and the
large-scale influence on the ocean are not well quantified except in a few
locations (Falkowski et al. 1994; Liu et al. 2000). Regional coastal ecosystem
models have ...
