Mechanisms driving glacial deep ocean deoxygenation

Abstract:

Deep ocean deoxygenation inferred from proxies has been used to support the hypothesis that lower atmospheric carbon dioxide during glacial times was due to an increase in the strength of the ocean’s biological pump. This relies on the assumption that surface ocean oxygen (O2) is equilibrated with the atmosphere such that any O2 deficiency observed in deep waters is a result of organic matter respiration consuming O2 and producing dissolved inorganic carbon. However, this assumption has been ...
