Global Carbon Cycling on a Heterogeneous Seafloor

Diverse biological communities mediate the transformation, transport, and storage of elements fundamental to life on Earth, including carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. However, global biogeochemical model outcomes can vary by orders of magnitude, compromising capacity to project realistic ecosystem responses to planetary changes, including ocean productivity and climate.

Nutrient co-limitation at the boundary of an oceanic gyre

Nutrient limitation of oceanic primary production exerts a fundamental control on marine food webs and the flux of carbon into the deep ocean. The extensive boundaries of the oligotrophic sub-tropical gyres collectively define the most extreme transition in ocean productivity, but little is known about nutrient limitation in these zones.

Characterization of depth distributions, temperature associations, and seasonal migrations of Atlantic halibut in the Gulf of St. Lawrence using pop‐up satellite archival tags

The fishery for Atlantic Halibut Hippoglossus hippoglossus in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (Gulf) is currently experiencing its highest landings since the 1950s. However, the absence of information on adult habitat use has limited the development of new survey methodologies.
