New Paper: Temporal and regional variabilities in the attenuation of sinking particulate organic carbon in the Kuroshio region (Frontier in Marine Sciences)

Dr. Hideki Fukuda and colleagues used sediment trap and in situ laser diffraction sizer to examine the particulate carbon flux and size of sinking particles. Results from SKED (Study of Kuroshio Ecosystem Dynamics for Sustainable Fisheries) project.

FIGURE 6 Relationships of T100 with (A) sea surface temperature, (B) sinking flux of POC, (C) mean particle diameter of the volumetric particle size distribution (mPDV), and (D) slope of the regression line of the particle size number distribution. Spearman rank order correlations (rs) are presented.
