Alternative particle formation pathways identified in the Equatorial Pacific’s biological pump

The ocean is one of the largest sinks of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) on our planet, driven in part by CO2 uptake by phytoplankton in the upper ocean during photosynthesis. Eventually, a portion of the resulting organic carbon is transported to depth, where it is sequestered from the atmosphere for centuries or even millennia. Our […]

However, a recent study in Science Advances revealed that this might not be true. During round-the-clock shipboard sampling, lights used at night can actually be a […]
