Sampling and Analytical Methods: Samples were collected on RV/Endeavor cruise
589. Locations, times, and conditions at the four hydrographic stations are
available under Supplemental Documentation. During some periods, size-resolved
mPMA was sampled from the generator\u2019s headspace at 30 L min-1 with two
non-rotating Multi-Orifice Uniform Deposit Impactors (MOUDIs, [Marple et al.,
1991]) operated in parallel. Substrates and back filters from one impactor
were analyzed for major ions and those from the other impactor were analyzed
for water extractable organic carbon (OCwe). The aerodynamic cut diameters for
the impactor\u2019s size fractions were 18, 10, 5.6, 3.2, 1.8, 1.0, 0.56,
0.32, and 0.18 \u00b5m. Impactors were configured with precombusted 47-mm
diameter aluminum substrates and 37-mm diameter quartz backup filters.

During some periods, bulk mPMA was sampled in parallel at 30 L min-1 on two
precombusted 47-mm quartz filters, one of which was analyzed for major ions,
OCwe, and surfactants and the other for total OC and radiocarbon age.

During two periods, bulk mPMA was sampled in parallel at 30 L min-1 on two
90-mm Teflon filters. One sample was analyzed for major ions and OCwe and the
other was stored for photochemical manipulation experiments.

After recovery, samples of size-resolved and bulk mPMA for analysis of major
ions were transferred to precleaned 10-mL HDPE tubes, stored frozen,
subsequently extracted in 5 mL deionized water (DIW), and analyzed at the
University of Virginia (UVA) using a Dionex duel channel model ICS 3000 high-
performance ion chromatograph (IC). The anion channel was configured with
Thermo Scientific Dionex guard (IonPac AG 18: 4 x 50 mm) and analytical
separator (IonPac AS 18: 4 x 250mm) columns and electrolytically regenerated
suppressor (AERS 500: 4mm). The cation channel was configured Dionex Guard
(IonPac CG16: 5 x 50mm) and analytical separator (IonPac CG16: 5 x 250mm)
columns and a Thermo Scientific Dionex electrolytically regenerated suppressor
(CERS 500: 4mm).

Size-segregated mPMA sampled with cascade impactors and in bulk on quartz
filters for analysis of OCwe were transferred to precombusted 10-mL Pyrex
tubes, extracted immediately after recovery in 5 mL DIW, stored frozen, and
analyzed in triplicate with a Shimadzu Model TOC-V CSH carbon analyzer at the
State University of New York (SUNY).

Bulk mPMA sampled on Teflon filters were extracted immediately after recovery
in five sequential aliquots of DIW (total of 25 mL). Subsamples of extracts
were stored frozen on site and analyzed for major ions at UVA and for OCwe at
SUNY using methods described above.

Data for mPMA samples were corrected based on median concentrations of
analytes measured in dynamic handling blanks (N = 5 for impactor and 8 for
bulk samples) that were loaded and unloaded during the campaign and
subsequently processed and analyzed using procedures identical to those used
for samples.

Unfiltered seawater for analysis of major ions was sampled in precleaned 10-mL
HDPE tubes, stored frozen, and analyzed by IC at UVA.

Average detection limits (DLs) for mPMA analytes were estimated following
Keene et al. [1989, JGR] and are summarized (see Supplemental Documents)

Average precisions for inorganic mPMA analytes are estimated to be \u00b14% of
the measured concentrations or \u00b10.5*DLs, whichever are the greater
absolute values. Precisions for OCwe correspond to the standard deviations for
triplicate measurements.

Measured concentrations of all ionic constituents in seawater were
substantially higher than estimated DLs. Average precisions are approximately
\u00b12% of the measured concentrations.

operation of the marine aerosol generator, analytical methods, and data

attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_acronym String Refractory DOC Recycling
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String The oceans hold a massive quantity of organic carbon that is greater than all terrestrial organic carbon biomass combined. Nearly all marine organic carbon is dissolved and more than 95% is refractory, and cycled through the oceans several times before complete removal. Refractory dissolved organic carbon (RDOC) concentrations are uniform with depth in the water column and represent the "background" carbon present throughout the oceans. However, very little is known regarding RDOC production and removal processes. One potential removal pathway is through adsorption of RDOC onto surfaces of rising bubbles produced by breaking waves and ejection via bubble bursting into the atmosphere. Building on prior research, the investigators will evaluate the importance of ocean- atmosphere processing in recycling marine RDOC during a research cruise in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean. Results of the research will provide important insights regarding the coupled ocean-atmosphere loss of RDOC, thereby improving understanding of and ability to predict the role of RDOC in oceanic and atmospheric biogeochemistry, the global carbon cycle, and Earth's climate. The research will involve three early career faculty, and will provide training for undergraduate and graduate researchers.
Recent results based on a limited set of observations indicate that the organic matter (OM) associated with primary marine aerosol (PMA) produced by bursting bubbles from breaking waves at the sea surface is comprised partly to wholly of RDOC rather than OM of recent biological origin as has been widely assumed. The injection of RDOC into the atmosphere in association with PMA and its subsequent photochemical oxidation is a potentially important and hitherto unrecognized sink for RDOC in the oceans of sufficient magnitude to close the marine carbon budget and help resolve a long-standing conundrum regarding removal mechanisms for marine RDOC. This project will involve a shipboard investigation and modeling study to (1) quantify the relative contributions of marine refractory dissolved organic carbon (RDOC) to primary marine aerosol organic matter (PMA OM) produced from near-surface seawater in biologically productive and oligotrophic regions and from North Atlantic Deep Water, and to (2) determine the importance of atmospheric photochemical processing as a recycling pathway for RDOC. To test these hypotheses, a high-capacity aerosol generator will be deployed at four hydrographic stations in the NW Atlantic Ocean to characterize (1) the natural abundance of 14C in PMA and in surface and deep seawater; (2) the surface tension and physical properties of bubble plumes; (3) size-resolved production fluxes, chemical composition, organic carbon enrichments, spectral absorbance, and photochemical evolution of PMA; and (4) the carbon content, optical properties, and physical properties of seawater. The importance of RDOC recycling via PMA production and photochemical evolution will be interpreted with model calculations.
