How do phytoplankton in the ocean modify the ocean carbon cycle? This resource introduces the work of Professor Katsumi Matsumoto, an ocean biogeochemist at the University of Minnesota. He is using numerical modelling to investigate the ratio of carbon to nitrogen to phosphorus in phytoplankton in the ocean. It includes an interview with Katsumi and offers an insight into careers in ocean biogeochemistry. It also includes an activity sheet, which contains ‘talking points’ (based on Bloom’s Taxonomy) to prompt students to reflect on Katsumi’s work and challenges them to model the global ocean carbon cycle.
