attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String Glider deployment:
For this study, a slocum glider was deployed between March and July in 2013
and 2014 in the San Pedro Channel, located in the Southern California Bight
off the coast of Los Angeles. The glider was deployed on a 28 km cross-channel
path between Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes Peninsula and completed a
single cross-channel pass every 1.5\u20132 days (average speed 1 km h\u22121).
Data were collected between \u223c 3 and 90 m, with the exception of when the
glider crossed the major shipping lanes where the glider was constrained to
depths below 20 m to avoid damage or loss from ship traffic.

The GMT time stamp indicates the earliest time stamp for data binned within a
single profile.

Glider deployments were from small boats belonging to the USC Wrigley Marine
Sciences Center or from the R/V Yellowfin.

Teledyne Webb G1 Slocum electric gliders equipped with a WET Labs EcoPuck
FL3 fluorometer (used for Chlorophyll a fluorescence), a WET Labs EcoPuck BB3
sensor (used for backscatter at wavelengths of 532, 660, and 880 nm), and a
Sea-Bird flow-through CTD (used for temperature, salinity, and pressure).

attribute NC_GLOBAL project String UpRISEE O2 upwelling
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_acronym String UpRISEE O2 upwelling
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String The marine biological pump is one of the primary pathways via which anthropogenic carbon dioxide may be sequestered from the atmosphere and exported to the deep ocean as organic carbon. While the link between nutrient supply and high primary productivity in upwelling regions is well established, factors controlling the organic carbon export efficiency of upwelling ecosystems are not well known. Scientists from the University of Southern California and Pomona College plan to determine the factors that control the rates and magnitudes of two components of biological production, Net Community Production (NCP) and Gross Primary Production (GPP), as well as particulate organic carbon export efficiency, at the San Pedro Ocean Time Series, a coastal site in the California Borderland during periods of minimal and high upwelling velocity over a 2-year span. At this site, past and ongoing observations of hydrography and carbon rain will provide an historical context for interpreting results and mechanisms at work.
Rates of NCP and GPP will be quantified at different upwelling intensity, using dissolved oxygen to argon (O2/Ar) ratios and the oxygen triple isotope composition of dissolved oxygen (O2). The export of organic carbon will be established using 234Th (thorium) profiles in the water column, coupled with floating sediment trap deployments, and the development of a carbon isotope balance for the water column. Upwelling will be characterized using non-steady state budgets for atmospheric 7Be (beryllium) input and its depth-integrated decay, as well as estimating rates based on remote measurements of wind stress curl and budgets for dissolved inorganic carbon and silicon. Application of the O2/Ar ratio and the oxygen triple isotope approach will require depth-integrated profiles of these tracers to evaluate the impact of upwelling on mixed layer inputs and use of non-steady state models during seasonal transitions in upwelling. The comprehensive data set to be obtained should provide insights into the organic carbon export efficiency under variable upwelling regimes and help to relate the satellite-based measurements of chlorophyll to the organic carbon export of these highly productive ecosystems.
Broader Impacts: One graduate and one undergraduate student from the University of Southern California and two undergraduate students from Pomona College would be supported and trained as part of this project.
