Role of carbon cycle observations and knowledge in carbon management
(Annual Reviews, 2003-08-14)
Agriculture and industrial development have led to inadvertent changes in the natural carbon cycle. As a consequence, concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases have increased in the atmosphere and may ...
Sea–air CO2 fluxes in the Southern Ocean for the period 1990–2009
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-06-19)
The Southern Ocean (44–75° S) plays a critical role in the global carbon cycle, yet remains one of the most poorly sampled ocean regions. Different approaches have been used to estimate sea–air CO2 fluxes in this region: ...
Women in Oceanography : a web site for students, teachers, scientists, and the general public
(Oceanography Society, 2005-03)
In 1999 as the millennium was drawing to a close, we decided that the time was right to introduce a new type of web site highlighting the contributions that women are making to marine science. We envisioned a web site ...
Envisioning a marine biodiversity observation network
(University of California Press, 2013-05)
Humans depend on diverse ocean ecosystems for food, jobs, and sustained well-being, yet many stressors threaten marine life. Extensive research has demonstrated that maintaining biodiversity promotes ocean health and service ...

Upward nitrate transport by phytoplankton in oceanic waters : balancing nutrient budgets in oligotrophic seas
In oceanic subtropical gyres, primary producers are numerically dominated by small (1–5 µm diameter) pro- and eukaryotic cells that primarily utilize recycled nutrients produced by rapid grazing turnover in a highly efficient ...
Recent trends and drivers of regional sources and sinks of carbon dioxide
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2015-02-02)
The land and ocean absorb on average just over half of the anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year. These CO2 "sinks" are modulated by climate change and variability. Here we use a suite of nine dynamic ...
Phytoplankton phenology indices in coral reef ecosystems : application to ocean-color observations in the Red Sea
Phytoplankton, at the base of the marine food web, represent a fundamental food source in coral reef ecosystems. The timing (phenology) and magnitude of the phytoplankton biomass are major determinants of trophic interactions. ...
Ages and magnetic structures of the South China Sea constrained by deep tow magnetic surveys and IODP Expedition 349
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-27)
Combined analyses of deep tow magnetic anomalies and International Ocean Discovery Program Expedition 349 cores show that initial seafloor spreading started around 33 Ma in the northeastern South China Sea (SCS), but varied ...
