New paper in Progress in Oceanography

Satellites have clearly demonstrated the worth in mapping the ocean’s temperature, wave height, and plankton productivity, but we have not learned how to map the ocean’s rates of nitrogen-based productivity, respiratory CO2 production, oxygen consumption, and many other important ocean rate processes. Our recently published paper on modeling New Production from nitrate reductase activity is a “first-step” in learning how to map nitrate-based primary productivity over time and in ocean-space.
