Oceanic nutrient a key component of future change

Variations in nutrient availability in the world’s oceans could be a vital component of future environmental change, according to a multi-author review paper involving the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOCS). The paper, published this month in Nature Geoscience, reviews what we know about ocean nutrient patterns and interactions, and how … Seguir leyendo / Continue reading

Carbon Dioxide the Dominant Control on Global Temperature

Key Points: Because the water contained in land-based ice sheets is ultimately derived from the ocean, over long (geological) timescales global sea level is largely determined by global temperature and, consequently, the temperature-dependent volume of ice stored on land. Since the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (The Greenhouse Effect) exerts such a powerful influence on … Seguir leyendo / Continue reading
