Ocean ecosystems constitute more than 70% of the Earth’s surface area, and these massive watery habitats are home to some of the smallest organisms on the planet.  These abundant microscopic organisms influence climate through the production and consumption of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide ( CO2). Since 1988, the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) program [...]
