Abstract:

LONG TERM GOALS. We use innovative experimental approaches to measure biogeochemical interaction driven by the input of terrestrial organic carbon to the coastal oceans. The evolution of organic carbon from continents to oceans is not well understood. Remineralization of this carbon plays an unknown but apparently important role in stimulating productivity. This process and associated phenomena also affect ocean color, turbidity, and elemental recycling. Our long range goal is to quantify these processes in space and time.
