Physics vs. biology in Southern Ocean nutrient gradients

In the Southern Ocean, surface water silicate (SiO4) concentrations decline very quickly relative to nitrate concentrations along a northward gradient toward mode water formation regions on the northern edge (Figure 1a, b). These mode waters play a critical role in driving global nutrient concentrations, setting the biogeochemistry of low- and mid-latitude regions around the globe […]

Arctic rivers as carbon highways

Rapid environmental changes in the Arctic will potentially alter the atmospheric emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases such as methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). A recent study on the Canadian Arctic published in Geophysical Research Letters reveals that spring meltwater delivery drives episodic outgassing events along the lake-river-bay continuum. This spring runoff period is not […]

A quest for change

“The only way we can change the geoscience culture is by a massive shift in individual mindsets, with the aim of moving the field from passively non-racist to actively anti-racist.” – Kuheli Dutt (2019) – Nature Geoscience “Racism, injustice and police brutality are awful on their own, but are additionally pernicious because of the brain power […]

Global Ocean DOM Data Collection Under Construction

Dennis Hansell and Craig Carlson are compiling DOM data (DOC/TDN) from the global ocean with the intention of making those available to current and future generations of ocean scientists. Please contribute your data. We are compiling the long line (U.S. GO-SHIP and earlier) DOC/TDN and affiliated hydrographic data into a single collection. Our intention is […]
