Abstract:

A major oceanographic problem is to understand the biogeochemical dynamics of the upper kilometer of the water column. Such an understanding is fundamental to the predictability of the processes partitioning carbon between atmosphere and ocean and of those redistributing carbon and associated elements within the water column. Key to predictability is understanding day-to-day variability of processes governing abundances of carbon species dissolved and particulate, inorganic and organic in the watercolumn.
