An interdisciplinary team of scientists aboard the DeepDOM cruise investigated the composition of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in deep water from Uruguay to Barbados. Their findings will paint a biogeochemical picture of the carbon cycle from the ocean’s surface to its depths, laying a foundation for future predictions about the processes essential to marine life and the planetary climate system.(Photo by Krista Longnecker, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
