Tittel

European basin-scale analysis, synthesis and integration - EURO-BASIN

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

EURO-BASIN is designed to advance our understanding on the variability, potential impacts, and feedbacksof global change and anthropogenic forcing on the structure, function and dynamics of the North Atlantic andassociated shelf sea ecosystems as well as the key species influencing carbon sequestering and ecosystemfunctioning. The ultimate goal of the programme is to further our capacity to manage these systems in asustainable manner following the ecosystem approach. Given the scope and the international significance,EURO-BASIN is part of a multidisciplinary international effort linked with similar activities in the US andCanada. EURO-BASIN focuses on a number of key groups characterizing food web types, e.g. diatomsversus microbial loop players; key species copepods of the genus Calanus; pelagic fish, herring (Clupeaharengus), mackerel (Scomber scombrus), blue whiting (Micromesistius poutassou) which represent some ofthe largest fish stocks on the planet; piscivorous pelagic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) and albacore(Thunnus alalunga) all of which serve to structure the ecosystem and thereby influence the flux of carbonfrom the euphotic zone via the biological carbon pump. In order to establish relationships between these keyplayers, the project identifies and accesses relevant international databases and develops methods to integratelong term observations. These data will be used to perform retrospective analyses on ecosystem and keyspecies/group dynamics, which will be augmented by new data from laboratory experiments, mesocosmstudies and field programmes. These activities serve to advance modelling and predictive capacities based onan ensemble approach where modelling approaches such as size spectrum; mass balance; coupled NPZD;fisheries “end to end” models as well as ecosystem indicators are combined to develop understanding of thepast, present and future dynamics of North Atlantic and shelf sea ecosystems and their living marineresources.
