Seasonal progression of dissolved iron (DFe) concentrations in the upper water column were examined during four occupations in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean. DFe inventories from euphotic and aphotic reservoirs decreased progressively from July to February, while dissolved inorganic nitrogen decreased from July to January with no significant change between January and February.Read More..
Robotics The OceanGliders program started in 2016 to support active coordination and enhancement of global glider activity. OceanGliders contributes to the international efforts of the Global Ocean Observation System (GOOS) for Climate, Ocean Health, and Operational Services. It brings together marine scientists and engineers operating gliders around the world: (1) to observe the long-term physical, biogeochemical, and biologicalRead More..
In the Southern Ocean, increasing evidence from recent studies is highlighting the need for high-resolution sampling at fine spatial (meso- to sub-mesoscale) and temporal scales (intra-seasonal) in order to understand longer-term variability of phytoplankton and the controlling physical and biogeochemical processes. Here, high-resolution glider data (3 hourly, 2 km horizontal resolution) and satellite ocean colourRead More..
