Dear Colleagues,

My co-chairs and I are excited to announce the following session at the 2016 Ocean Sciences meeting (New Orleans, Louisiana; February 21-26, 2016):

Dynamic Ocean Management: Managing at Finer Scales for Mobile Ocean Resources (link to session webpage<https://agu.confex.com/agu/os16/preliminaryview.cgi/Session9332>)
Session ID: 9332

Session Description:
Dynamic ocean management aims to respond to the movement of managed species, ocean users, and underlying ocean features. Higher temporal resolution of management measures can create efficiency gains and allows managers to address problems that were previously intractable. Understanding patterns in space and time for both target and non-target species can allow management to explicitly respond to the dynamic movements of marine animals and people that rely on them. Dynamic approaches are particularly important for highly mobile species as well as resource users that follow features such as fronts and eddies that evolve rapidly in space and time. Advances in remote sensing, archival tagging, hand-held technology, and species-distribution models have improved our ability to predict areas of low to high risk of unwanted species interactions in near-real time. That information can be disseminated to alert users to changing dynamic management areas via website and mobile applications. This session will explore (1) life history traits and ecosystems that may benefit from dynamic ocean management approaches; (2) how both human and marine resources respond to dynamic oceanography; (3) empirical examples to help quantify the efficacy and efficiency of dynamic management; and (4) ultimately data frameworks that can improve responsiveness of ocean management.
