Po, a naturally occurring radioisotope that is ubiquitous in seawater, is especially enriched in proteinaceous tissues of marine organisms and may therefore be useful as a tracer of organic carbon flux in marine systems. Due in part to its biomagnification in marine food chains, 210 Po provides the largest radiation dose to any organism under natural conditions. To better understand the extent to which zooplankton can influence the fluxes of 210 Po and serve as a conduit between phytoplankton… CONTINUE READING
