Persistence of “urban” organics downstream favors dead-zone formation Each time it rains, runoff carries an earthy tea steeped from leaf litter, crop residue, soil, and other organic materials into the storm drains and streams that feed Chesapeake Bay. A new study led by researchers at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science reveals that land use in the watersheds from which this “dissolved organic matter” originates has important implications for Bay water...

Charcoal From Wildfires Enters Waterways And Works Its Way To Oceans
2013-04-20 07:14:14

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online New research claims charcoal created from wildfires does not remain in the soil as previously believed, but is instead transported into the sea by rivers, where it ultimately enters the carbon cycle. That determination was made by an international team of researchers, including Thorsten Dittmar from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology (MPI) in Bremen and Rudolf Jaffé from Florida International...

Catskills Watershed Polluted By Hurricane Irene

The water quality of lakes and coastal systems will be altered if  hurricanes intensify in a warming world, according to a Yale study in Geophysical Research Letters. Bryan Yoon, the study´s co-author and a doctoral student at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, found that last summer during Hurricane Irene–the worst storm in the New York area in 200 years–record amounts of dissolved organic matter darkened Catskill waters and affected the Ashokan...

Alpine Glaciers Important For Carbon Cycle 091812

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online On the surface, the term “carbon cycle” can seem cold and almost prosaic. It´s a term that many of us learned and came to understand in a third-grade science class, with the help of rudimentary illustrations of the sun shining down on the grass that the cow was about to devour for lunch and oversized arrows tracing the flow of energy for us. Like many things we learned in those early classes, it was diluted down to...

A new study by researchers at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) shows that jellyfish are more than a nuisance to bathers and boaters, drastically altering marine food webs by shunting food energy from fish toward bacteria. An apparent increase in the size and frequency of jellyfish blooms in coastal and estuarine waters around the world during the last few decades means that jellies' impact on marine food webs is likely to increase into the future. The results of the study, led...

Researchers have found compelling evidence for an extensive biological community living in porous rock deep beneath the seafloor. The microbes in this hidden world appear to be an important source of dissolved organic matter in deep ocean water, a finding that could dramatically change ideas about the ocean carbon cycle. Matthew McCarthy, associate professor of ocean sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz, led a team of researchers from several institutions who analyzed the...

Specific land management practices in agricultural watersheds, such as manure application, can affect carbon losses, according to a study in the Journal of Environmental Quality Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) losses from tile drains are an underquantified portion of the terrestrial carbon cycle. This is particularly important in the eastern corn belt where tile drainage dominates the agricultural landscape. Specific land management practices, such as manure application, can play a large role...

The Faculty of Biosciences at the University of Helsinki includes a project focusing on the ten major rivers in the world. Academy Research Fellow Anssi Vähätalo's group addresses the journey of riverine organic to the oceans and in particular the photochemical decomposition of organic carbon caused by sunlight. The research project sheds new light on the mechanisms of the carbon cycle on the global scale and it enhances understanding of the links between continents and oceans....
