OCEANIC dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is one of the Earth's largest carbon reservoirs, but until recently its role in the carbon cycle has been neglected. New methodology1, however, has led to larger estimates of DOC concentrations and also to renewed interest in the biochemical lability of DOC2. Previous work found that the mean age of DOC in the surface ocean was > 1,000 years3. To examine the lability of DOC in greater detail, we have conducted experiments to estimate DOC turnover rates in… Expand
