Tracing terrestrial DOC in the Baltic Sea; a 3D model study
The fate of terrestrial carbon in the marine environment and what role it plays in the carbon cycle is of great interest as rivers bring huge amounts of it each year to coastal seas. With global warming and an increased river runoff this discharge is expected to increase, therefore, it is important to understand the dynamics of the terrigenous carbon in the marine environment. In this study we are focusing on the fate, including physical mixing and degradation, of terrestrial dissolved organic carbon (DOCterr) in the Baltic Sea. This is done by comparing output from a 3D circulation model, a NEMO configuration for the Baltic Sea, with observations of DOC.
