The projection of marine ecosystem response to future climate scenarios is needed to assess and implement marine ecosystem management. The marine ecosystem is part of the earth system, and prediction of ecosystem responses requires integrated knowledge from physical, chemical, and biological perspectives, as well as from marine, terrestrial and atmospheric perspectives. The earth system is complex with non-linear feedbacks (including biological to physical), regime shifts, and, in some cases, thresholds beyond which change is irreversible. Therefore, the uncertainties of climate and oceanographic models cause uncertainties of the projection of marine ecosystem response not only directly but also through complex feedback mechanisms. To reduce the uncertainties of the marine ecosystem projection, we must understand the mechanisms controlling climate systems and the linkages to marine ecosystems. Specific species responses to future ecosystem conditions are required by natural resource managers, and these require specific information (e.g., environments in coastal area during the short spawning period) as well as information regarding change of the ecosystem as a whole (e.g., total primary production, food-web dynamics). These issues are not part of climate modeling, but mechanistic links between the biological, physical, and chemical systems must be identified and incorporated into coupled population-ecosystem-climate models. Technical advances and new approaches are essential to achieve the goal of producing better projections of marine ecosystem response to future climate scenarios. This session will focus on climate and oceanographic models, including modeling of climate and ecosystem interaction, and technical advances and new approaches.
