New Publication: Evidence of climate-driven ecosystem reorganization in the Gulf of Mexico

Posted by on in Gulf Science and Education - Archives

In a new publication, Evidence of climate-driven ecosystem reorganization in the Gulf of Mexico, scientists reviewed over 100 indicators representing physical, biological, and economic aspects of the Gulf of Mexico and found that ecosystem-wide reorganization occurred.  They also analyzed these shifts and their alignment with the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO). They “provide an explanation for how the AMO may drive physical changes in the Gulf of Mexico, thus altering higher-level ecosystem dynamics. The hypotheses presented here should provide focus for further targeted studies, particularly in regard to whether and how management should adjust to different climate regimes or states of nature.”
