A new Nature Geoscience paper co-authored by MIT Darwin Project member, research scientist, Gael Forget finds that global ocean heat transport is dominated by heat export from the tropical Pacific.

The Redfield ratio, the atomic ratio of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus (C:N:P) in phytoplankton and deep ocean waters, has often been treated as a constant 106:16:1. A new paper involving several CBIOMES co-authors, among them two from the MIT Darwin Group, presents compelling evidence for what causes this ratio to change within phytoplankton. Continue reading
MIT Darwin Project researcher, Principal Research Scientist Stephanie Dutkiewicz, talks to WGBH’s Living Lab Radio about her recent Ocean colour signature of climate change paper in Nature Communications.
Former MIT Darwin Group member Keisuke Inomura, working with MIT CBIOMES investigator Mick Follows, presents a new quantitative model of nitrogen fixation in the presence of ammonium. Continue reading
MIT Darwin Group Research Scientist Jonathan Lauderdale and Postdoc Maike Sonnewald, use a simple game involving Swedish Fish, inspired by principles put forth by ecologist Crawford Stanley (Buzz) Holling, to model connections between food abundance and predator consumption at MIT Museum’s 2019 Nautical Day, February 23rd.
