The ProteOMZ Expedition: Investigating Life Without Oxygen in the Pacific Ocean

Mak Saito
From Schmidt Ocean Institute's ProteOMZåÊProject page: Rising temperatures, ocean acidification, and overfishing have now gained widespread notoriety as human-caused phenomena that are changing our seas. In recent years, scientists have increasingly recognized that there is yet another ingredient in that deleterious mix: a process called deoxygenation that results in less oxygen available in our seas. Large-scale ocean circulation naturally results in low-oxygen areas of the ocean called oxygen deficient zones (ODZs). The cycling of carbon...
