The abundance and significance of a class of large, transparent organic particles in the ocean
A dye-binding assay for the spectrophotometric measurement of transparent exopolymer particles (TEP)
A simple, semiquantitative method to determine the concentration of TEP colorimetrically, which shows that TEP are not generated as an artifact of filtration and compares well with parallel light microscope counts.
Characteristics, dynamics and significance of marine snow
Intense hydrolytic enzyme activity on marine aggregates and implications for rapid particle dissolution
LARGE, rapidly sinking organic aggregates are an important component of the carbon flux from the ocean's surface to its depths. Marine snow, the main type of large (<0.5 mm) aggregate, is heavily…
In situ settling behavior of marine snow1
The settling velocities of undisturbed macroscopic aggregates known as marine snow were measured with SCUBA in surface waters off southern California and analyzed as a function of aggregate size,…
Phylogenetic diversity of aggregate‐attached vs. free‐living marine bacterial assemblages
The data indicate that specific bacterial populations, different from those which predominate in free-living bacterioplankton, develop on marine phytodetrital aggregates.
