Darwin Project study led by Jonathan Lauderdale finds Earth’s oceans contain just the right amount of iron; adding more may not improve their ability to absorb carbon dioxide. Continue reading Seeding Oceans with Iron may not Impact Climate Change

A new study led by Samuel T. Wilson from the University of Hawai’i, co-authored with Darwin Project researchers John Casey, Stephanie Dutkiewicz, Mick Follows, Christopher Hill, and Oliver Jahn, uses the Darwin ecosystem model embedded within an MITgcm (~2 km) resolution regional physical model of the North Pacific Ocean to study how the input of silicic acid, iron, nitrate, and phosphate along the southeast coast of Hawai‘i impacts nearby phytoplankton productivity.
