The sustainable development of living and non-living marine resources, the protection of the marine environment and the provision of marine-based services are critical to economic prosperity and to the quality of life of European citizens. Addressing these concerns, marine-science researchers conducted a workshop reviewing major topics of European marine research. This publication contains overview and thematic background papers, as well as reports and recommendations for future research covering topics such as ocean-climate coupling, biogeochemistry, coastal and shelf processes, and ecosystem functioning/biodiversity.
Ocean-Climate Coupling, Variability and Change.- Tropical Pacific Influences on the North Atlantic Thermohaline Circulation.- Climate Records from Corals.- Coupled Biogeochemical Cycling and Controlling Factors.- Biogeochemical Processes in Estuaries.- Trace Metals in the Oceans: Evolution, Biology and Global Change.- Coastal and Shelf Processes, Science for Integrating Management.- Operational Oceanography - The Stimulant for Marine Research in Europe.- Sea of Substances Pollution: Future Research Needs.- Ecosystem Functioning and Biodiversity.- What Structures Marine Biodiversity and why Does it Vary?- Marine Microbial Food Web Structure and Function.
