Task Team: Climate Forcing and Marine Ecosystem Response Task Team
  • Acronym: TT-CFAME
  • Parent Committee: CCCC
  • Term: Oct. 2004 - Oct. 2009
  • Co-Chairs:
    Kerim Aydin (Oct. 2004 - Oct. 2009, USA)
    Young-Shil Kang (Oct. 2004 - Oct. 2009, Korea)
    Akihiko Yatsu (Oct. 2004 - Oct. 2009, Japan)
To synthesize regional and basin-wide studies and provide a forum for the integration of CCCC-related hypotheses and data
Terms of Reference
  1. The CFAME Task Team is responsible for the promotion, coordination, integration and synthesis of research activities related to the CCCC Program among member nations. This goal could be accomplished by convening meetings, periodic scientific symposia or workshops, or by distributing information designed to foster cooperation and integration among existing or developing programs;
  2. The CFAME Task Team should provide the scientific body for hypothesis testing of model experiments, by providing a forum for interaction between data-gathering and distribution programs (MONITOR) and theoretical experimentation and development (MODEL and NEXT) as related to climate change impacts on marine ecosystems;
  3. Particular emphasis is placed on testing ecosystem-level hypotheses, through review and examination in a collaborative environment, of (i) comparisons between regional and/or basin ecosystems, (ii) linkages in time, space, or seasonality between climate and ecosystems, and (iii) responses of regional ecosystems to basin-scale forcing;
  4. The CFAME Task Team should encourage establishment of component activities as needed to facilitate synthesis of the CCCC Program.
