Quantifying the impact of freshwater diatom productivity on silicon isotopes and silicon fluxes: Lake Myvatn, Iceland

Abstract:

Diatom productivity in the oceans plays a crucial role in the carbon cycle, but is strongly dependent upon the continental silicon supply. However, the relative influence of weathering and biological processes on continental Si fluxes remains poorly constrained. This study aims to quantify the impact of terrestrial diatom productivity on Si fluxes to the ocean. Lake Myvatn in North Iceland is one of the most productive lakes in the Northern Hemisphere, with nutrient-rich waters almost uniquel...
