  • Stomatal control of leaf fluxes of carbonyl sulfide and CO2 in a Typha

    • Abstract: Stomatal control of leaf fluxes of carbonyl sulfide and CO2 in a Typha freshwater marsh

      Biogeosciences, 15, 3277-3291, https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-3277-2018, 2018
      Carbonyl sulfide (COS) is an emerging tracer to probe land photosynthesis at canopy to global scales, but the relationship between leaf COS and CO2 fluxes needed for this application is poorly quantified. With in situ leaf fluxes of COS and CO2 measured in a freshwater marsh, we show that light and vapor deficit control the relationship between leaf COS and CO2 fluxes by regulating stomatal conductance. Our findings support the use of COS as a tracer for canopy photosynthesis.

  • Interannual sedimentary effluxes of alkalinity in the southern North Sea:
           model results compared with summer observations

    • Abstract: Interannual sedimentary effluxes of alkalinity in the southern North Sea: model results compared with summer observations
      Johannes Pätsch, Wilfried Kühn, and Katharina Dorothea Six
      Biogeosciences, 15, 3293-3309, https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-3293-2018, 2018
      Biogeochemical shelf sea modelling has a long tradition. Most models include early diagenesis sediment modules for remineralization of organic matter. The model presented here also simulates alkalinity, which is exported into the pelagic system. There the produced alkalinity joins in the carbonate system and is able to buffer invading atmospheric CO2. The input of nitrate via rivers stimulates alkalinity generation within the sediment, which in turn reduces the acidification of coastal areas.

      We provide first determination of k in the human-impacted subtropical streams and small rivers. High and highly variable k values reflect different controls on water turbulence. New models of k are developed using water depth and flow velocity. We show that previous estimates of riverine CO2 evasion from subtropical streams and small rivers are conservative, and highlight the importance of incorporating scale-appropriate k measurements into extensive pCO2 investigation for accurate C budgets.

      The effect of inorganic nutrients on planktonic assemblages has been traditionally assessed by looking at concentrations rather than fluxes of nutrient supply. However, in near steady-state systems such as the subtropical gyres, nitrate concentrations are kept close to the detection limit due to phytoplankton uptake. Our results, based on direct measurements of nitrate diffusive fluxes, support the key role of nitrate supply in controlling the structure of marine picoplankton communities.

  • Controls of terrestrial ecosystem nitrogen loss on simulated productivity
           responses to elevated CO2

    • Abstract: Controls of terrestrial ecosystem nitrogen loss on simulated productivity responses to elevated CO2

      Biogeosciences Discuss., https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-2018-232,2018
      Manuscript under review for BG (discussion: open, 0 comments)
      Terrestrial biosphere models employ various representations of ecosystem nitrogen loss, some based on soil N availability, some based on net N mineralization. We show in local and global simulations that this variety leads to pronounced uncertainty in the predicted magnitude and sign of ecosystem N loss change under elevated CO2. Suprisingly, this uncertainty barely affects predicted carbon storage responses to elevated CO2, illustrating the need for new benchmarks especially in the boreal zone.

  • Effects of hypoxia and non-lethal shell damage on shell mechanical and
           geochemical properties of a calcifying polychaete

    • Abstract: Effects of hypoxia and non-lethal shell damage on shell mechanical and geochemical properties of a calcifying polychaete
      Jonathan Y. S. Leung and Napo K. M. Cheung
      Biogeosciences, 15, 3267-3276, https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-3267-2018, 2018
      Some calcifiers can sustain normal shell growth under hypoxia, which may involve trade-offs against shell quality. This hypothesis was tested by measuring the shell growth and shell properties of a calcifying polychaete. Despite the adverse effect on metabolism, we found that hypoxia had limited impact on shell growth probably due to the changes in shell properties as trade-offs. This suggests that such plastic response could be fundamental for calcifiers to maintain calcification under hypoxia.

  • Climate and marine biogeochemistry during the Holocene from transient

    • Abstract: Climate and marine biogeochemistry during the Holocene from transient model simulations

      Biogeosciences, 15, 3243-3266, https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-3243-2018, 2018
      To gain a better understanding of climate and marine biogeochemistry variations over the last 9500 years (the Holocene), we performed non-accelerated model simulations with a global coupled climate and biogeochemistry model forced by orbital parameters and atmospheric greenhouse gases. One main outcome is an increase in the volume of the eastern equatorial Pacific oxygen minimum zone, driven by a slowdown of the large-scale circulation.

      There is a lack of proxies suitable for reconstructing, in a quantitative way, past changes in continental atmospheric humidity, which is a key climate parameter. Here, we demonstrate through climate chamber and climate transect calibrations that the triple oxygen isotope composition of phytoliths offers a potential for reconstructing changes in relative humidity.

    • Abstract: Effects of elevated CO2 and temperature on phytoplankton community biomass, species composition and photosynthesis during an experimentally induced autumn bloom in the western English Channel
      Matthew Keys, Gavin Tilstone, Helen S. Findlay, Claire E. Widdicombe, and Tracy Lawson
      Biogeosciences, 15, 3203-3222, https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-3203-2018, 2018
      We conducted a microcosm experiment on a natural phytoplankton community under year 2100 predicted CO2 concentrations and temperature. Biomass and photosynthetic rates were significantly increased by elevated CO2 and elevated temperature. In contrast, the combined influence of these two factors had little effect. This suggests coastal phytoplankton productivity may not be influenced by future conditions. However, the combined influence promoted the greatest diversity and increased HAB species.

      Tidal wetlands, such as tidal marshes and mangroves, are hotspots for carbonsequestration. The preservation of organic matter (OM) is a critical processby which tidal wetlands exert influence over the global carbon cycle and atthe same time gain elevation to keep pace with sea-level rise (SLR). Thepresent study assessed the effects of temperature and relative sea level onthe decomposition rate and stabilization of OM in tidal wetlands worldwide,utilizing commercially available standardized litter. While effects ondecomposition rate per se were minor, we show strong negative effects oftemperature and relative sea level on stabilization, as based on the fractionof labile, rapidly hydrolyzable OM that becomes stabilized during deployment.Across study sites, OM stabilization was 29 % lower in low, more frequentlyflooded vs. high, less frequently flooded zones. Stabilization declined by ∼  75 % over the studied temperature gradient from 10.9 to28.5 °C. Additionally, data from the Plum Island long-termecological research site in Massachusetts, USA, show a pronounced reduction inOM stabilization by  >  70 % in response to simulated coastaleutrophication, confirming the potentially high sensitivity of OMstabilization to global change. We therefore provide evidence that risingtemperature, accelerated SLR, and coastal eutrophication may decrease thefuture capacity of tidal wetlands to sequester carbon by affecting theinitial transformations of recent OM inputs to soil OM.

      Based on classical concepts in ecology, and a literature survey, we highlight the importance of flooded land as a preferential source of atmospheric carbon to aquatic systems at the global scale. Studies in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems could be reconciled by considering the occurrence of an efficient wetland CO2 pump to river systems. New methodological approaches coupling hydrology and ecology are also necessary to improve scientific knowledge on carbon fluxes at the land-water interface.

      Margaux Gourdal, Martine Lizotte, Guillaume Massé, Michel Gosselin, Michel Poulin, Michael Scarratt, Joannie Charette, and Maurice Levasseur
      Biogeosciences, 15, 3169-3188, https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-3169-2018, 2018
      Melt ponds (MP) forming over first year ice (FYI) represent a potential source of the climate-relevant gas dimethylsulfide (DMS) to the atmosphere. Nine MP were sampled in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. DMS concentrations reaching up to 6 nmol L−1, twice the world's surface oceanic mean, were measured. Seawater intrusion appeared to seed MP with DMS-producing communities. DMS flux from Arctic MP is expected to increase in response to the expanding areal and temporal trends of MP on FYI.

      The paper surfaces a potential bottom-up deterioration induced by ocean acidification on the shells of an ecologically and economically important oyster, which is critical to forecasting the survival and production of edible oysters in future ocean. Importantly, this is a multi-disciplinary collaboration including aquaculture, crystallography, medical and materials science, which could be applied to other biomineral systems to hierarchically analyse the impact of ocean acidification.

      Diatoms can dominate the Arctic Ocean spring bloom, the key annual event for regional food webs. Diatom growth requires silicon and this nutrient has been declining in the European Arctic. This study communicates an unprecedented coupling of silicon-cycling measurements around Svalbard during the spring and shows that dissolved silicon can limit diatom production. These results suggest an important coupling of silicon and carbon cycling during the spring bloom in the European Arctic.

      Single celled, benthic foraminifera play a major role in marine biogeochemical cycling. Our experiments with two coastal species proved, that ecological adaptations to temperature and microalgae food sources have a strong impact on the species-specific cycling of organic carbon and nitrogen. We found high rates of short-time carbon and nitrogen turnover in the species Ammonia tepida. Therfore, this species can act as a key player in the mediation of microbial carbon and nitrogen fluxes.

  • Spatiotemporal transformation of dissolved organic matter along an alpine
           stream flowpath on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau: importance of source and

      With global warming, the thawing of permafrost released dissolved organic matter (DOM) into stream. By analyzing DOM along an alpine stream on Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, we found DOM was mainly from the active layer, but with deepening of active layer, the contribution of deep permafrost layer increased. This shift causes change in chemical composition of DOM. From head to down-stream, DOM is undergoing rapid degradation, but some components are persistent and can be transported to downstream.

      Dissolved iron is one of the most important nutrients for the marine life. The production and consumption of dissolved iron are therefore closely associated with the carbon cycling in the ocean. We present geochemical data and numerical modeling results to discuss how the supply of dissolved iron, from marine sediments to the ocean, is connected to carbon and sulfur cycles and influence the distribution of animals in environments with high methane supply.

      The GEOVIDE cruise (May–June 2014, R/V Pourquoi Pas') aimed to provide a better understanding on trace metal biogeochemical cycles in the North Atlantic. As particles play a key role in the global biogeochemical cycle of trace elements in the ocean, we discuss the distribution of particulate iron (PFe). Lithogenic sources appear to dominate the PFe cycle through margin and benthic inputs.

  • In situ evidence of mineral physical protection and carbon stabilization
           revealed by nanoscale 3-D tomography

      We have developed a high-resolution 3-D tomography approach and successfully applied it. We provided in situ evidence and reveal an abundance of mineral nanoparticles, in dense thin layers or nano-aggregates/clusters, instead of crystalline clay-sized minerals on or near OC surfaces. The key working minerals for C stabilization were reactive short-range-order (SRO) mineral nanoparticles and poorly crystalline submicron-sized clay minerals in a Fe oxyhydroxide-poor environment.
