Chapter 10, this volume). In the present chapter, we focus on the roles of climate variability and climate change on the ecological components of marine ecosystems, especially at large spatial scales, that is, regional and larger. We begin by defining climate, climate variability, and climate change. This is followed by descriptions of some of the large-scale climate indices and their connection to regional climate variability as well as a discussion of teleconnections across large spatial scales.

1995), and Atlantic mackerel, Scomber scombrus (Ware 1977), have been found to vary with temperature. It has been hypothesized that this is to match the size of the larvae to their prey at the time of hatching, the latter also being temperature-dependent (Ware 1977). Rapid changes in temperature also have been observed in the field to trigger spawning in some invertebrate species, such as the scallop, Placopecten magellanicus (Bonardelli et al. 1996). 4 Phenology Temperature and light are the most important physical factors affecting phenology in the marine environment, with the responses being speciesdependent.

It is thus important to understand the main patterns in how physics affects the biology, but in particular we need to know more about the actual mechanisms and processes involved. A population may react immediately to a climate signal or it may have a delayed (lagged) response. The atmosphere tends to have a ‘short memory’ of external forcing, although because it responds quickly, the effects also dissipate quickly. The ocean tends to have a ‘long memory’ of external forcing, because it responds slowly but the effects persist.
