    From 2000 until January 2010 vertical profiles were collected above eastern Amazonia to help determine regional-scale (∼10-10 km) fluxes of carbon cycle-related greenhouse gases. Samples were collected aboard light aircraft between the surface and 4.3 km and a column integration technique...

    The long-term carbon cycle operates over millions of years and involves the exchange of carbon between rocks and the Earth's surface. There are many complex feedback pathways between carbon burial, nutrient cycling, atmospheric carbon dioxide and oxygen, and climate. New calculations of carbon...

    An upgrade of classical methods to calculate the anthropogenic carbon (Cant) signal based on estimates of the preformed dissolved inorganic carbon (C°T) is proposed and applied to modern Atlantic sections. The main progress has been the use of sub surface layer data (100-200m) to reconstruct...

    The Arctic Ocean is one of the fastest changing oceans, plays an important role in global carbon cycling and yet is a particularly challenging ocean to study. Hence, observations tend to be relatively sparse in both space and time. How the Arctic functions, geophysically, but also ecologically,...
