This study demonstrates the importance of biology and ecology to understanding iron biogeochemistry.
This study provides one of the first mechanistic explanations for Last Glacial Maximum deep ocean deoxygenation.
Using historical (1987-2007) and recent GEOTRACES data, authors compiled an impressive data set comprising dissolved, filtered and trap-collected particulate iron
Joint Science Highlight with US Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB). Iron (Fe) is a key element to life but in seawater it is present at extremely low concentrations. The scarcity […]
Joint Science Highlight with US-Ocean Carbon & Biogeochemistry (US-OCB). Using an observationally constrained earth system model, S. Khatiwala and co-workers (2019, see reference below) compare different processes that could lead […]
Joint Science Highlight with US-Ocean Carbon & Biogeochemistry (OCB). Carbon storage in the ocean is sensitive to the depths at which particulate organic carbon (POC) is respired back to CO2 […]
Microorganisms play a central role in the transfer of matter and energy in the marine food web. Microbes depend on micronutrients (e.g. iron, cobalt, zinc, and a host of other […]
Browning and co-workers (2017, see reference below) find that multiple nutrients must be supplied to stimulate phytoplankton growth on the southeast Atlantic GEOTRACES GA08 cruise. The paper has been published […]
Zinc (Zn) is a marine micronutrient, important for phytoplankton and involved in biogeochemical cycling throughout the oceans. Despite the importance of this element, the processes that control the oceanic Zn […]
