    1. On the influence of “non-Redfield” dissolved organic nutrient dynamics on the spatial distribution of N2 fixation and the size of the marine fixed nitrogen inventory

      Christopher J. Somes and Andreas Oschlies

      Accepted manuscript online: 25 MAY 2015 05:59AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014GB005050

      Key Points

      • Large-scale datasets of DON and DOP constrain the global model
      • Preferential DOP remineralization and uptake stimulate additional N2 fixation
      • The marine fixed nitrogen inventory is sensitive to non-Redfield DOP cycling

      Key Points

      • Cd/P of particles exported from the surface ocean doubles in HNLC regions.
      • Cd/PO4 variations in surface ocean and deep sea depends on Cd/P of degraded particles
      • Past changes in HNLC conditions would change Cd-PO4 relationship in deep sea.

      Accepted manuscript online: 14 MAY 2015 05:33AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2015GB005087

      Key Points

      • The function predicts the rate-depth profile of particulate organic carbon.
      • Vertically-resolved POC degradation rate is a function the POC rain rate.
      • The model predicts a global denitrification and POC burial rate.
    7. Global Patterns and controls of soil organic carbon dynamics as simulated by multiple terrestrial biosphere models: current status and future directions

      Hanqin Tian, Chaoqun Lu, Jia Yang, Kamaljit Banger, Deborah N. Huntinzger, Christopher R. Schwalm, Anna M. Michalak, Robert Cook, Philippe Ciais, Daniel Hayes, Maoyi Huang, Akihiko Ito, Atul Jain, Huimin Lei, Jiafu Mao, Shufen Pan, Wilfred M. Post, Shushi Peng, Benjamin Poulter, Wei Ren, Daniel Ricciuto, Kevin Schaefer, Xiaoying Shi, Bo Tao, Weile Wang, Yaxing Wei, Qichun Yang, Bowen Zhang and Ning Zeng

      Accepted manuscript online: 11 MAY 2015 05:31AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014GB005021

      Key Points

      • Simulated historical (1901-2010) SOC dynamics varies largely among models
      • 10 TBMs agree that climate and land use change have reduced SOC stocks
      • Rising CO2 and N deposition are prone to increase SOC with varying magnitudes
    8. Temperature, oxygen, and vegetation controls on decomposition in a James Bay peatland

      Michael Philben, James Holmquist, Glen MacDonald, Dandan Duan, Karl Kaiser and Ronald Benner

      Accepted manuscript online: 6 MAY 2015 02:47PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014GB004989

      Key Points

      • Biochemical indices were used to determine decomposition in a peat core
      • Decomposition was highest with high oxygen exposure time and vascular vegetation
      • Higher temperatures during peat formation did not appear to affect decomposition

      Key Points

      • Large N-loss signals were observed in a mesoscale eddy
      • Nitrite oxidation increases the overall isotope effect of nitrate reduction
