A data-model synthesis to explain variability in calcification observed during a CO2 perturbation mesocosm experiment

A series of studies were conducted during the last two decades to investigate effects of ocean acidification (OA) on phytoplankton physiology, plankton ecology, and biogeochemical dynamics of marine ecosystems. Among those studies are experiments with tanks or bags called mesocosms, with some enclosed water volume that typically comprised a natural plankton community found in the […]
