Special Issue: US GLOBEC: Understanding Climate Impacts on Ocean Ecosystems

On the Cover: The US GLOBEC Pan-Regional Synthesis program sought to understand, by multi-regional comparative studies, the impacts of global climate variability on marine ecosystems, including the bio-physical mechanisms responsible for observed and potential marine population variability. Several of the study regions are shown; the high-resolution regional windows indicate the locations where retrospective, field sampling, and/or numerical modeling studies were conducted.
