Achterberg, E. P. (2014). Grand challenges in marine biogeochemistry. Frontiers in Marine Science, 1, 7. doi:10.3389/fmars.2014.00007
Introduction: The ocean plays a central role in our earth’s climate system and also provides a range of important ecosystem services, including food, energy, transport, and nutrient cycling. Marine biogeochemistry focuses on the study of complex biological, chemical, and physical processes involved in the cycling of key chemical elements within the ocean, and between the ocean and the seafloor, land and atmosphere…
Banse, K. M. (2014). Assessing ocean changes without data centers? Frontiers in Marine Science, 1. doi:10.3389/fmars.2014.00029
Introduction: How may we know that the ocean has or has not changed on the half-century time scale, if data points through time from in-situ measurements are not available because we, the observing scientists, did not and still often do not deposit our observations in data centers?
