Thorium-234 Activity in Particulate and Dissolved Phases Measured during the JGOFS North Atlantic Bloom Experiment (NABE)

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) seeks to understand
the processes that control the transfer of carbon and other
biologically active elements in the ocean. In addition, JGOFS
hopes to improve global-scale predictions of the ocean's response to
human-induced climate change.
