EXPORTS 2018 and the Ocean Twilight Zone

From Voice of The Sea TV.

EXPORTS is a unique scientific undertaking by NASA and the National Science Foundation to understand and predict the carbon cycle. There is an urgent need to better understand the fate of carbon in the deep ocean in order to predict future climate conditions, and OTZ members are deeply embedded in the EXPORTS program. The University of Hawai’i Seagrant program Voices of the Sea took a look at the 2018 EXPORTS expedition, which made use of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography research vessels R/V Revelle and Sally Ride and that included members of the Buesseler Lab studying the rate at which carbon sinks through the twilight zone, from the surface to the deep ocean.
