UM researchers study vast carbon residue of ocean life

(University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science) The oceans hold a vast reservoir -- 700 billion tons -- of carbon, dissolved in seawater as organic matter, often surviving for thousands of years after being produced by ocean life. Yet, little is known about how it is produced, or how it's being impacted by the many changes happening in the ocean.
