Swirling Currents Deliver Phytoplankton Carbon to Ocean Depths

3 days ago − Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Just as crocus and daffodil blossoms signal renewal and the start of a warmer season on land, a similar "greening" event--a massive phytoplankton bloom--unfolds each spring in the Atlantic Ocean from Bermuda to the Arctic. But, what happens to all that organic material produced in the surface ocean? …
