#CLIMATE #p2 Tiny organisms, giant impact

Denise Lineberry NASA Langley Research Center On August 30, NASA’s North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) returned to air and sea to research the declining, or deaccelerating, phase of the annual cycle of plankton in the North Atlantic. Since plankton form the base of the marine food web and impact the productivity of fisheries, understanding this declining phase is important to forecasting the future. Plankton are strongly interconnected with climate and life on Earth. NAAMES scientists already have discovered shifts in plankton rates that give rise to an early winter bloom with a climax in late spring. NASA’s C-130 prepares to leave for its first science flight of the fall campaign. Researchers have integrated, tested and calibrated instruments that will help measure the impact the declining annual phase of plankton on the atmosphere. Credit: NASA/P...
