New Paper in GBC: Coccolithophore growth dynamics in the Pacific Sector of the Southern Ocean

In our new paper “Environmental Drivers of Coccolithophore Growth in the Pacific Sector of the Southern Ocean” we use both observations (shipboard and remote sensing) in combinations with simple growth models (parameterized using CESM/MARBL) to understand what are the major driving factors controlling calcification in the Subantarctic Zone, particularly far from any sedimentary sources. This work was done in collaboration with Dennis McGillicuddy, Kristen Krumhardt, Matt C. Long, Nick Bates, Bruce Bowler, Dave Drapeau, and Barney Balch.
