Aron Stubbins of the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography has had research published this month in the March 2012 issue of Nature Geoscience on the process of carbon-containing dissolved organic matter (DOM) in glacial ice.

Glaciers provide a great deal of carbon to downstream ecosystems. Many scientists believe the source of this carbon is the ancient forests and peatlands overrun by the glaciers. However, Stubbins and his colleagues believe the carbon comes mainly from contemporary biomass and fossil fuel burning that gets deposited on the glacier surfaces. His paper can be viewed on-line at  The mission of the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography is to provide the State of Georgia with a nationally and internationally recognized center of excellence in marine science through research and education.
