Study from researchers in MIT’s Darwin Project suggests sea ice blocks the flow of carbon both into and out of the ocean, in roughly equal measure. Continue reading Antarctic sea ice may not cap carbon emissions as much as previously thought

A warm Darwin-welcome to Clara Fronda, visiting from France this spring. Continue reading Darwin Welcomes Visiting Student Clara Fronda
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

In a new paper, MIT-CBIOMES investigator Stephanie Dutkiewicz and collaborators use the Darwin ecosystem model to develop theories seeking to explain and predict phytoplankton biogeography.
