Dear Colleagues:

For those of you working on or interested in the ocean acidification and 
marine calcification issue, we'd like to call your attention to the 
following session at the EGU meeting in Vienna, Austria, 02-07 April 
2006.  Deadline for abstractes is this Friday (Jan 13). 

(Apologies for cross-listings)

*"BG6.02: Ocean acidification: chemistry, paleo-analogues, response of 
organisms and ecosystems, and modelling"*

We encourage submissions to this session from a broad geographic, 
thematic and instrumental range. The absolute abstract deadline is 13 
January 2006.

The aim of this session is to review recent data on the chemical,  
biological, and geological consequences of rising atmospheric CO2 and  
resulting ocean acidification. Conceptual, experimental and modelling  
contributions are welcome and all time scales will be considered.

*Further information:*
Contributions may be oral or poster, but the programme organizers aim to 
have 70% or more of the presentations as posters.  Authors should 
indicate their preference, but the conveners and organizers may allocate 
contributions to either oral or poster in order to reach the desired 
oral:poster ratio.  Further information is available from the meeting 
web site at http://meetings.copernicus.org/egu2006/.
