Using Isotope Probing of Microbe-Microbe Interactions to Determine the Fate of Carbon and Impacts on Climate Change

Ty Samo | 19-LW-044

Executive Summary

Our goal is to quantitatively assess the role ocean microbes play in climate change now and in future ocean conditions. We will study microbe-to-microbe interactions during glycolate metabolism to determine the extent to which the microbial feedbacks mitigate or exacerbate carbon dioxide emissions, information that could inform strategies that support climate security.
