Sep 2019: Particle flux analysis begins again

September, 2019

NOC scientists are working on samples collected at the PAP-SO this year.

These sediment trap samples are part of a thirty-year time series and give us an opportunity to observe the flux of carbon into the ocean interior. This long-term monitoring is unique and as part of the PAP sustained observatory, we can view the carbon flux alongside physical properties such as temperature and carbon dioxide.

We’ve got the when, now all we have to do is keep exploring the how and the why.
