Marine Snowfall at the Equator

GEOMAR team publishes a detailed picture of the biological particle flow into the deep sea along the equator. Animal excrements and parts of dead organisms constantly sink from the surface of the oceans towards the deep sea. This particle flow, also referred to as “marine snowfall”, plays an important role in the global carbon cycle and consequently for the climate. Little is known so far about its distribution in the water column.
