The Marine Carbon Cycle from North to South along the Galathea route
Entry ID: Galathea

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Aim:
To collect a multidisciplinary dataset describing the upper ocean processes controlling ocean-atmosphere carbon exchange on a global scale.

Purpose: Objectives:
• To quantify the marine carbon cycle in the upper ocean together with the airsea exchange of CO2, trace gasses and particle deposition from Greenland to Antarctica.
• To compare the roles and contributions of different ocean regions in/to physical, chemical and biological processes in the global carbon and nutrient cycles.
• To take advantage of new technology and remote sensing to quantify the role of ocean mesoscale activity – “ocean weather” - on the spatial variability of air-sea gas exchange of CO2 on the global scale.
