Low oxygen eddies open up new views on the Atlantic Ocean

Beskrivelse

After the discovery of low-oxygen eddies in the tropical and subtropical Atlantic Ocean, some assumptions regarding biogeochemical cycles in this region now have to be rethought. Marine scientists from Kiel and Plön (Germany) have found processes within these short-lived eddies that previously were not know in the open Atlantic. These processes influence, inter alia, the availability of nutrients not only in the Atlantic, but also the climate. The study has recently been published in the international scientific journal Biogeosciences.
