Earth Expeditions: Sea Hunt For Climate-Ocean Biology Link

About half the carbon dioxide emitted into Earth’s atmosphere each year ends up in the ocean, and plankton absorb a lot of it. NASA’s North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) took to the sea and air to investigate the world’s largest plankton bloom and how it gives rise to small organic particles that leave the ocean and end up in the atmosphere, ultimately influencing clouds and climate.

In May scientists took to the field for the second of four campaigns aboard a NASA research aircraft based in Canada and a research vessel from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
