Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to understand the biogeochemical dynamics of the ocean s upper kilometer. Such an understanding is fundamental to prediction of the processes partitioning carbon between atmosphere and ocean and to the redistribution of carbon and associated elements within the water column. Key to predictability is understanding the day-to-day variability of processes governing abundances of carbon species dissolved and particulate, inorganic and organic in the water column.
