ANACONDAS: Amazon iNfluence on the Atlantic: CarbOn export from Nitrogen fixation by DiAtom Symbioses
Entry ID: ANACONDAS_project


Summary
Abstract: The Amazon River plume ecosystem, extending thousands of km from the river mouth, represents a potentially significant but poorly understood, climate-sensitive C sequestration pathway that seems to violate the expectation of an inefficient open-ocean biological pump. The ANACONDAS investigators hypothesize that large tropical river plumes with low N:P ratios provide an ideal niche for ... View entire text

Purpose: The ANACONDAS project aims to address specifically 1) how C cycling and sequestration in the tropical North Atlantic is influenced by the Amazon River through its impact on pelagic ecosystem dynamics and 2) the sensitivity of this ecosystem to anthropogenic climate change. Our focus is to identify the links between riverine micronutrient ratios, enhanced N2-fixation, phytoplankton community ... View entire text
