Dear Colleagues,
contributors for the next ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting, that will be held 22-27 
February 2015 in Granada, Andalusia, Southern Spain, should submit and register 
before the abstract deadline of 23:59 U.S. Central Time on Friday, October 10, 
We would like to welcome a presentation (oral or poster) of your work for the 
following session, that we are organizing:  
Session 61 - Global climate change: ocean acidification experiments at CO2 vents.
Ocean acidification (OA) has raised concerns about its effects on marine 
organisms, particularly for those reliant on the generation and accumulation of 
calcium carbonate (CaCO3) shells, tests, skeletons, and/or structures. As a 
consequence of OA, the ability of marine calcifiers to deposit CaCO3 is modified in 
response to changes in ocean geochemistry as carbonate ions are an essential 
substrate for biotic calcification. Most studies investigating how elevated CO2 will 
impact the function of marine organisms are laboratory-based, making it difficult to 
directly relate laboratory results to the effect that elevated CO2 will have on 
marine biota in situ. Field experiments, at sites with naturally-elevated CO2 
conditions, such as CO2 vents, are potentially useful analogues for investigating 
the effect of future acidification on marine organisms and ecosystems. Vents are 
not ideal predictors of future oceans, owing to pH variability but they acidify 
seawater on sufficiently large temporal and spatial scales to integrate ecosystem 
processes, acting as "natural laboratories." This session is intended to provide a 
summary of the main findings obtained from field-based studies and provide key 
lessons on the long-term effects of ocean acidification on marine ecosystems 
acclimatized to high pCO2.

Should you need any further information on the scope of the session &#8232;and/or on any 
practical issue concerning the ASLO 2015 Aquatic &#8232;Sciences Meeting, please do not 
hesitate to contact us. We look forward to your participation in this exciting 
meeting and to seeing you soon in Granada.
Best wishes,

Fiorella Prada
