Biogeochemical modelling of the feedback between ocean biota and climate at polar latitudes
Entry ID: ASAC_2584

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2584
See the link below for public details on this project.

The Southern Ocean plays a significant role in the biogeochemical cycling of sulphur due to high spring-summer fluxes of dimethylsulfide (DMS), particularly south of 60 degrees S. Recent DMS flux perturbation simulations have recently highlighted the key role of the SO between 50-70 degrees S in ... View entire text
