Surface Ocean Processes in the Anthropocene - Current Phase: III

Surface Ocean Processes in the Anthropocene - Current Phase: III
General information
The atmosphere’s composition determines the Earth‘s climate and habitability. This composition is, in turn, strongly determined by biological, physical and chemical processes occurring within the oceans. For example, gas exchange across the enormous surface area of the global ocean, together with ocean circulation and biology, plays a crucially important role in controlling the present-day level and growth rate of CO2 in the atmosphere.
