Portland JASM Meeting Report

I am in Portland (OR) for the JASM meeting. We have two presentations. I am giving a talk on our global ocean simulation and Neil is talking about our Taihu model. Yesterday I was at a session on “molecular ecology” and (as usual) I was struck by how disconnected the conventional phytoplankton/biogeochemical modeling approach is from the types of observations that are being generated. This session may be an extreme example of this, but people are presenting DNA, RNA, etc. data. Whatever happened to chlorophyll a? We really need to change our models to keep up with the changes in observational technology.

Here are links to our abstracts:
