059 Ecological impacts of El Niño 2015-16

El Niño of 2015-16 was among the strongest events on record in the equatorial Pacific and had impacts across diverse biomes ranging from tropical coral reefs to mid- and high-latitude plankton communities. This event was particularly notable because it developed on the heels of the anomalous warm Pacific conditions of the previous year. El Niño influences propagated directly via atmospheric teleconnections and changes in ocean temperature and circulation, and indirectly via altered winds, nutrient availability, changes in predator distributions, and other effects. We invite papers treating El Niño impacts in tropical, temperate, and high-latitude environments ranging from benthic to neritic and pelagic systems. Contributions are welcomed on different aspects of marine genetic, population, community, ecosystem, or biogeochemical responses to this ecological perturbation. The session aim is to bring together a diverse group of aquatic scientists to report their findings on the ecological effects of this historically strong El Niño, which may provide insight into future responses of marine ecosystems to such events.
