The International Museum of Art & Science will be hosting a lecture by Dr. Jongsun Kim (UTRGV School of Earth, Environmental, & Marine Science) on Sunday, January 15 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Consequence of diverse nitrogen input caused in coastal productivity and organic carbon fluxes in the coastal Gulf of Mexico (GOM)
Nutrient cycling is an essential contributor to marine ecosystems. The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) is a significant source of primary production in the ocean, which is related to the carbon budget. The ecosystem model showing the pathway of nutrients in the GOM can be proposed by combining all input and output sources on the assumption that the GOM is in a steady state condition. This model can show the primary production rate, which can be used for the calculation of the carbon budget in the entire GOM.
