Transport of Warm Upper Circumpolar Deep Water onto the Western Antarctic Peninsula Continental Shelf

Poster Number:  90 Presenter/Primary Author:  Doug Martinson Five thermistor-moorings were placed on the continental shelf of the western Antarctic Peninsula (between 2007 and 2010) in an effort to identify the mechanism(s) responsible for delivering warm Up

Evaluation of Southern Ocean O2/Ar-based Net Community Production (NCP) Measurements

Poster Number:  87 Presenter/Primary Author:  Scott Doney Sea-air biological O2 flux assessed from measurements of surface O2 supersaturation in excess of that of Ar is used commonly to constrain net community production (NCP) in the

Biogeochemical Effects of Saltwater Intrusion and Increased Inundation on Everglades Peat Soil

Poster Number:  83 Presenter/Primary Author:  Stephen Davis The mangrove wetlands that dominate the coastal Everglades (Florida, USA) overlie >1 m of carbon-rich peat soil and serve as a globally important carbon sink.  With sea level rising at ~3 m

Assessing the importance of seagrass habitat restoration to “blue carbon” sequestration in the shallow coastal zone

Poster Number:  82 Presenter/Primary Author:  Jill Greiner Seagrass meadows are highly productive habitats and provide many important ecosystem services to the coastal zone, including carbon and nutrient sequestration.  Organic carbon accumulates in s
