Effects of biogenic silica dissolution on silicon cycling and export production

  title={Effects of biogenic silica dissolution on silicon cycling and export production},
  author={Masahiko Fujii and Fei Chai},
[1] Biogenic silica (bSiO2) dissolution plays an important role in the marine silicon cycle, diatom production and vertical export production. An ocean ecosystem model that incorporates dependency of bSiO2 dissolution on water temperature was used to examine the effects of bSiO2 dissolution on diatom production and bSiO2 export. Diatoms dominate with higher bSiO2 dissolution rates because of enhanced silicic acid supply for diatom production. Annual bSiO2 export does not change with bSiO2… CONTINUE READING
