53rd International Ocean Liège colloquium

The 53rd International colloquium on ocean dynamics in Liège will be held between 16-20 may 2022 on the topic "Low oxygen environments in marine and coastal waters : Drivers, consequences, solutions". Ten thematic sessions addressing research priorities of The Global Ocean Oxygen Decade (GOOD) program.

The 53rd Liege colloquium will investigate new developments and insights related to deoxygenation in open and coastal waters. The colloquium is a contribution to the Ocean Decade program Global Ocean Oxygen Decade (GOOD) and the definition of its sessions is aligned with GOOD activities.

More specifically, the following topics will be considered:

  • Deoxygenation: understanding causes and attributing changes.
  • Assessing open ocean and coastal deoxygenation variability and trends.
  • Deoxygenation: observing and modelling
  • Deoxygenation and ocean life
  • Deoxygenation and co-stressors: understanding, monitoring and mitigating deoxygenation in the context of multiple stressors
  • Ocean Deoxygenation - how the past can inform the future?
  • Microbial Communities and their controls on biogeochemical feedbacks and interactions
  • Deoxygenation, water quality and the climate system: understanding processes and feedbacks and developing actionable indicators
  • Deoxygenation: ecosystem services, economic and societal consequences.
  • Confronting deoxygenation and its impacts: translating science to management and policy
