In support of developing a systems-level understanding of microbially mediated elemental cycles along the lower reach of the Amazon River and its marine plume. This integrative program will collect microbial community structure and function data along the river-to-ocean continuum and develop a novel model that incorporates these data with other biological, chemical and physical information, to enable predictions of carbon sequestration as a function of the dynamic chemical composition of the Amazon River.
