Quantifying the air-sea fluxes of oxygen

Editor’s Highlight—

 

Bushinsky et al. have created, for the first time, an internally consistent oxygen dataset that permits them to address net air-sea O2 fluxes. Based on data from ARGO-style floats, they present new and existing observations of air-sea oxygen fluxes over the Southern Ocean. This paper represents a milestone contribution in our ability to quantify the air-sea fluxes of oxygen.
