Ocean’s carbon budget balanced: Supply of food to midwater organisms balanced with demands for food

This item was filled under Climate
Ocean scientists have, for the first time successfully balanced the supply of food to midwater organisms with their demands for this food. The depth at which they consume this sinking material regulates our climate by determining how much carbon is stored by the ocean and how much remains in the atmosphere.
