Martiny, Adam C.; et al. (2013): Strong latitudinal patterns in the elemental ratios of marine plankton and organic matter

Martiny, Adam C.; Pham, Chau T. A.; Primeau, Francois W.; Vrugt, Jasper A.; Moore, J. Keith; Levin, Simon A.; Lomas, Michael W. (2013): Strong latitudinal patterns in the elemental ratios of marine plankton and organic matter. In: Nature Geosci 6 (4), pp. 279–283. DOI 10.1038/ngeo1757

Study that is connected to ocean fertilization. "Here we assess global patterns in the elemental composition of phytoplankton and particulate organic matter in the upper ocean, using published and unpublished observations of particulate phosphorus, nitrogen and carbon from a broad latitudinal range, supplemented with elemental data for surface plankton populations."

Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals (IAGP)

"Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals (IAGP) is a four year research project, (October 2010 to September 2014) and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).  IAGP brings together a broad range of expertise, from climate modelling to philosophy and engineering to public perceptions to conduct an objective, policy-relevant assessment of geoengineering proposals."
