SkIO’s Aron Stubbins has a number of new publications.
Productivity from the glacier grant. Aron is the lead PI. This is the grant page. http://www.skio.uga.edu/?p=research/chem/biogeochem/glaciers

The following paper provides new insights into the nature and chemistry of oceanic dissolved organic matter published as part of a project Aron led at Old Dominion University and is now wrapping up. Hongmei Chen (lead author) graduated this fall from ODU.
