  1. Bacterial isolates obtained from the Beaufort Sea, Arctic

    To study the ecophysiological functions of cultured bacteria according to the environmental changes

  2. 1-D Ecosystem modeling for primary production and biogenic silica export in the Southern Ocean

    The modified ERSEM was implemented in the framework coupled with the General Ocean Turbulence Model (GOTM), a 1D water column model that includes a variety of turbulence closure schemes for vertical mixing (Burchard et al., 2006). The model was used for the three regions (ACC: 60oS, 180oE; NWR: 72oS, 172oE; TNB:74.5oS,165oE) from 1 January 1979 to 31 December 2019. Atmospheric forcing parameters, including zonal and meridional wind speeds, surface pressure, air temperature, dew point, and total cloud concentration, were obtained from the hourly the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) reanalysis ERA-5 data (0.125° horizontal resolution).

  3. O2/Ar - NCP of surface water measured using an equilibrator inlet mass spectrometer (2017.08 & 2020.08)

    O2/Ar in seawater, pumped from the intake at 7 m below sea level, was measured using an equilibrator inlet mass spectrometer. The mass spectrometer measured a series of dissolved gases including O2 and Ar every 10 seconds. The data contain ion currents of those gases and total pressure in the mass spectrometer. To evaluate the magnitude of biological pump and its influencing factors, we estimated the net community production (NCP) of the northern Chukchi Sea in August 2017 and 2020. Net community production (NCP), defined as the difference between autotrophic photosynthesis and (autrophic and heterotrophic) respiration, produces O2 proportional to the amount of net carbon. By measuring chemically and biologically inert Ar together with O2, it is possible to isolate O2 variation by physical processes (e.g., air temperature and pressure change and mixing of water masses) and deduce O2 variation by biological processes. To determine the net community (oxygen) production underway, we measured continuous O2/ Ar measurement system using an equilibrator inlet mass spectrometer.
