Increased temperatures suggest reduced capacity for carbon

The ocean’s biological pump works to draw down atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) by exporting carbon from the surface ocean. This process is less efficient at higher temperatures, implying a possible climate feedback. Recent work by Cael et al. provides an explanation of why this feedback occurs and an estimate of its severity. In a highly […]

Planet Microbe: Putting microbial ‘omics data back in oceanographic context

Planet Microbe is an NSF funded EarthCube Building Block that arose from the EarthCube Oceanography and Geobiology Environmental ‘Omic (ECOGEO) Research Coordination Network. During the first ECOGEO workshop (August 2015), participants identified data discovery, scalability, and access to computational resources as key challenges limiting progress in marine microbial ecology (see ECOGEO Workshop I Report). To […]
