Una nueva investigación revela que el nanoplancton podría tener una mayor influencia en el ciclo del carbono de lo que se pensaba.
Despite occurring on different scales, flux measurements throughout the water column share log-normal probability distributions.
Tiny microorganisms in the Southern Ocean affect the way the rest of the world’s seas respond to carbon dioxide.
New research finds that nanoplankton may have a larger influence on carbon cycling than previously thought.
Forests of fast-growing kelp influence the chemistry of the water in which they live. A new study evaluates their potential to ameliorate ocean acidification in sensitive coastal ecosystems.
Forecasts of carbonate chemistry in coastal ecosystems determined from seasonal robotic measurements can improve fisheries management and help mitigate short-term ocean acidification events.
A comparison of primary productivity measurements across the North Pacific Ocean demonstrates the potential for using autonomous instruments to discern effects of climate change on the marine food web.
Geoengineering strategies to slow sea ice melting would affect not only Earth’s climate but also the biology and chemistry of the oceans, atmosphere, and ice.
Eight hundred meters below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, microbes in subglacial Lake Whillans create organic carbon that helps power the Southern Ocean’s vast food chain.
Climate models that do not account for anaerobic microbial activity may underestimate future expansion of oxygen-depleted waters.
