Indian Ocean Biogeochemical Processes and Ecological Variability provides a unique synthesis of current knowledge on Indian Ocean biogeochemistry and ecology, and an introduction of new concepts and topical paradigm challenges. It also reports on the development of more extensive/frequent observational capacity being deployed in the Indian Ocean. This book The volume is derived from invited plenary talks that were presented at the initial SIBER workshop held at the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) in Goa, India in October 2006. It includes contributions from some of the most esteemed oceanographers and Indian Ocean experts in the world. This volume will be valuable to academic and governmental researchers interested in oceanographic, atmospheric and hydrological questions and the interfaces between these processes that are prevalent within the Earth system and which are especially relevant to understanding the complex interactions in the Indian Ocean. The volume discusses: y The overlying physical processes set by monsoonal forcing and how these control biological production and variability y Nutrient cycling and limitation y Pelagic carbon cycling and air-sea exchange y Benthic biogeochemistry and ecology y The impact of climate and human activities on biogeochemistry and ecosystems.
