Title: Examining marine phosphorus biogeochemistry from enzymes to ecosystems

Abstract: Phosphorus (P) is an essential macronutrient that supports marine productivity and climate.  Over the past decade, we have learned that P moves throughout the world’s oceans with a higher level of complexity than has ever been appreciated before, including new perspectives on the coupled cycling of P, carbon, and trace elements.  Here, I will present results from the California Current Ecosystem, laboratory plankton cultures, and pure enzyme studies that help advance this highly dynamic and oceanographically integral view of marine P.

The Department of Earth System Science acknowledges our presence on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Acjachemen and Tongva peoples, who still hold strong cultural, spiritual and physical ties to this region.
