Climate models that do not account for anaerobic microbial activity may underestimate future expansion of oxygen-depleted waters.
Sargassum and other brown algae might be an underappreciated contributor of organic compounds called polyphenols to the open ocean.
New research suggests that combining ship- and float-based observations provides a more accurate measure of how much carbon the Southern Ocean absorbs.
New findings suggest that rare events underlie a global inverse relationship between primary production of organic carbon in the upper ocean and the fraction that is exported to the deep sea.
A new study uses Argo floats and an ocean circulation model to track the sources supplying pulses of oxygen to the deep North Pacific.
A new study suggests that shifting ocean currents drive faster carbon dioxide uptake.
A new framework for understanding the suite of processes acting on marine particulate trace metals exemplifies how alternative analyses can maximize the information that large data sets provide.
A new study tracks how climatic factors like sea ice cover and ocean circulation affect the life span and distribution of polychlorinated biphenyls in the world’s oceans.
A new study looks for the source of a spike in the potent greenhouse gas methane.
Underwater gliders provide unprecedented, daily data that reveal new insights into how carbon gets from the atmosphere to the deep ocean.
