Changes in fecal pellet characteristics with depth as indicators of zooplankton repackaging of particles in the mesopelagic zone of the subtropical and subarctic North Pacific Ocean Wilson, Stephanie E.; Steinberg, Deborah K.; Buesseler, Ken O. (2008-01-31)We investigated how fecal pellet characteristics change with depth in order to quantify the extent of particle repackaging by mesopelagic zooplankton in two contrasting open-ocean systems. Material from neutrally buoyant ...
Ocean circulation and biogeochemistry moderate interannual and decadal surface water pH changes in the Sargasso Sea Goodkin, Nathalie F.; Wang, Bo-Shian; You, Chen-Feng; Hughen, Konrad A.; Grumet-Prouty, Nancy; Bates, Nicholas R.; Doney, Scott C. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-06-25)The oceans absorb anthropogenic CO2 from the atmosphere, lowering surface ocean pH, a concern for calcifying marine organisms. The impact of ocean acidification is challenging to predict as each species appears to respond ...
On the midwater fish faunas of Gulf Stream rings with respect to habitat differences between slope water and northern Sargasso Sea Jahn, Andrew E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-04)Forty-three 1000-in oblique Isaacs-Kidd midwater trawl collections were made on six cruises. In most cases, these were accompanied by 1500-m hydrocasts and plankton tows to 800 m. The fish collections comprise 19,400 ...
