Abstract

The organization of such a transdisciplinary colloquium and workshop presented unique challenges. A great deal of effort was spent ensuring that lectures and talks were cohesive and that all speakers identified ways in which their perspective on carbon-climate interactions transcended traditional terrestrial and ocean disciplinary boundaries. By far the best part of the colloquium was the interaction with the strong group of students. A sense of deep curiosity and enthusiasm permeated the event, and personal and professional relationships developed at the colloquium continue to blossom. By exposing students to intense, transdisciplinary training, we hope to have stimulated new ideas that will assist them in the development of cross-disciplinary cooperative research efforts. The success of this colloquium clearly calls for sustained activities, such as the ASP summer initiatives, to coordinate cross-disciplinary research.
