Abstract:

The biological carbon pump (BCP) is the process by which ocean organisms transfer carbon from surface waters to the ocean interior and seafloor sediments for sequestration. Viruses are thought to increase the efficiency of the BCP by fostering primary production and facilitating the export of carbon-enriched materials in the deep sea (the...More
