Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to understand the biogeochemical dynamics of the upper kilometers of the water column. Such an understanding is fundamental to the 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 day-to-day to seasonal variability of processes governing carbon species dissolved and particulate, inorganic and organic in the water column.
