Ocean's Heat Cycle Shows that Atmospheric Carbon may be Headed Elsewhere

Tuesday, Jun 19, 2018

A recent study in the journal Nature Geosciences, led by AOS Faculty Member Laure Resplandy, assistant professor of geosciences and the Princeton Environmental Institute, and coauthored by AOS Research Oceanographer Keith Rodgers, among others, examined the global carbon cycle and suggests that scientists may have misgauged how carbon is distributed around the world, particularly between the northern and southern hemispheres. The results could change projections of how, when and where the currently massive levels of atmospheric carbon will result in environmental changes such as ocean acidification.
