Quantification of iron-rich volcanogenic dust emissions and deposition over the ocean from Icelandic dust sources
(Copernicus PublicationsEuropean Geosciences Union, 2014-12-02)
Iceland has extremely active dust sources that result in large-scale emissions and deposition on land and at sea. The dust has a volcanogenic origin of basaltic composition with about 10% Fe content. We used two independent ...
Ocean acidification in the subpolar North Atlantic: rates and mechanisms controlling pH changes
(European Geosciences Union, 2016-06-23)
Repeated hydrographic sections provide critically needed data on and understanding of changes in basin-wide ocean CO2 chemistry over multi-decadal timescales. Here, high-quality measurements collected at twelve cruises ...
Heterogeneity of impacts of high CO2 on the North Western European shelf
(Copernicus Publications, 2014-02-03)
The increase in atmospheric CO2 is a dual threat to the marine environment: from one side it drives climate change, leading to modifications in water temperature, circulation patterns and stratification intensity; on the ...
Projected pH reductions by 2100 might put deep North Atlantic biodiversity at risk
(Copernicus Publications, 2014-12-11)
This study aims to evaluate the potential for impacts of ocean acidification on North Atlantic deep-sea ecosystems in response to IPCC AR5 Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs). Deep-sea biota is likely highly ...
Export of calcium carbonate corrosive waters from the East Siberian Sea
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2017-04-05)
The Siberian shelf seas are areas of extensive biogeochemical transformation of organic matter, both of marine and terrestrial origin. This in combination with brine production from sea ice formation results in a cold ...
