A model study of warming-induced phosphorus-oxygen feedbacks in open-ocean oxygen minimum zones on millennial timescales
Description: Model simulations show that the warming induced increase in terrestrial weathering leads to an increase in marine P inventory resulting in an intensification of the biological pump. As a consequence, oxygen consumption as well as the volume of OMZs increase in our simulations by a factor of 12 over the next millennium. [Source: Earth System Dynamics]
