ISI-MGClimDeX (Inter-Sectoral Impact of Martinique and Guadeloupe Climate Downscaling eXperiment) combines low-to-high resolution models with regional models in order to assess climate change at small scale, and to subsequently derive local mitigation and adaptation policies. This poster was presented at the 69th GCFI (Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute) Conference at Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands.
Diel Vertical Migration (DVM) of zooplankton has been widely recognized as an important factor contributing to the carbon sink. DVM is driven by the predatory pressure on zooplankton during daylight, leading to migration depths ranging between 200m and 800m. The amount of active transport compared to passive gravitational flux is estimated to be between 15% and 40% at present. DVM is not included into OGCBMs due to its complexity, variability and poor characterization, in line with other processes in the twilight zone. This poster was presented at the Ocean Sciences Conference 2016 in New Orleans, US.
The recent availability of the most comprehensive database of marine N2-fixers lead us to evaluate the performance of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 5 (CMIP5) on nitrogen fixation rates. This poster was presented at the Greencycles II Miniconference Evaluation of Earth System Models using modern and palaeo-observations in Cambridge, UK.
Strengths and weaknesses of current ocean biogeochemical models must be taken into account when we try to estimate the present N2O inventory in the ocean interior. This poster received the Best Poster Award at the IMBER Summer School A view towards integrated Earth System Models: interactions in the marine world, in Ankara, Turkey.
