Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to our session: "Between a Rock and 
a Soft Place: Interfacial Dynamics on Reefs and Their Consequences for 
reef processes"

Session ID: 9672

Session description:

Interfaces in the marine environment are dominated by diffusive 
processes, but metabolic activity influences the dynamics within the 
microenvironment created at these interfaces, both at the surface of an 
organism, and within the organism itself. Because they are small, 
dynamic, and often isolated, microenvironments can be difficult to 
characterize. Despite the small scale of microenvironments, they can 
have large impacts on the physiology of marine organisms, species 
interactions, and large scale ecological processes on reefs. The purpose 
of this session is to bring together researchers who are using unique 
methods to investigate the dynamics within microenvironments in 
reef-dwelling organisms. Investigating these dynamics is essential to 
improving our understanding of the interplay between physical, chemical, 
and biological processes influencing reef-dwellers, how they may be 
influenced by environmental change, and the associated consequences for 
reef processes worldwide. We welcome abstracts related to interfacial 
dynamics of any benthic marine organisms associated with reef structures.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is September 23^rd 2015 at 23:59 EDT
Submit your abstract: via: http://osm.agu.org/2016/abstract-submissions/

Feel free to pass this along to interested colleagues and contact us if 
you have questions.

We look forward to your submissions and an exciting meeting in New Orleans.

Best wishes,
