Oxygen in the Southern Ocean from Argo floats: Determination of processes driving air-sea fluxes

by Seth M. Bushinsky, Alison R. Gray, Kenneth S. Johnson, and  Jorge L. Sarmiento


Editor’s Highlight
Bushinsky et al. have created, for the first time, an internally consistent oxygen dataset that permits them to address net air-sea O2 fluxes. Based on data from ARGO-style floats, they present new and existing observations of air-sea oxygen fluxes over the Southern Ocean. This paper represents a milestone contribution in our ability to quantify the air-sea fluxes of oxygen.
