Microbial Carbon Pump in the Ocean

Editors: Dr. Nianzhi Jiao, Dr. Farooq Azam, Dr. Sean Sanders

Microbes have been found to inhabit all parts of the globe. Recently, it has been discovered that they may play a critical role in the sequestration of carbon in the oceans through a system termed the microbial carbon pump (MCP). Learn all about the MCP and its potential effect on atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and the global climate in this collection of previously published articles from Science, coupled with 10 new review manuscripts from leading international scientists studying this phenomenon.
