Primary Production: Plankton, Light and Nutrients Microscopic marine phytoplankton form the base of the marine food web. They use energy from the Sun to fix CO2 and account for around 45% of global primary production. , 2007; Fig. 7), sinks 28 Philip C.

This section addresses the contribution that planktonic and benthic organisms make to carbon cycling in the ocean with a commentary on the biogeochemical and other controls on primary production.

The pattern of change was highly correlated with SST and an index of ENSO climate variability. The link between ocean biology and the physical environment was shown to operate via warmer upper-ocean temperatures enhancing stratification, which reduced the availability of nutrients for phytoplankton growth and vice versa. 8 Global image of mean surface chlorophyll for the period 1998–2007.

As a result, they are not adequately included in current ice sheet models and there is no consensus as to how quickly they could cause sea-level to rise. Note that these uncertainties are essentially one sided. That is, they could lead to a substantially more rapid rate of sea-level rise but they would not lead to a significantly slower rate of sea-level rise. Current projections suggest that the East Antarctic ice sheet will remain too cold for widespread surface melting and that it is expected to gain mass from increased snowfall over the higher central regions.
