Aron Stubbins co-edits special journal issue


Aron Stubbins co-edited a special issue for the journal Marine Chemistry titled “Biogeochemistry of Dissolved Organic Matter.”

The contents of the special issue included one paper by Thais Beraldo Bittar, one by Leanne Power and five by Aron.

The issue included a collection of papers on the biogeochemistry of dissolved organic matter (DOM). Many of the papers had their origin in a special session on DOM cycling that was convened at the 2014 biennial Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The special issue’s introduction states, “It has long been recognized that “dissolved organics matter” to the microbial communities that inhabit the dilute but complex soup of organic compounds found in all natural waters. The purpose of the special session was to better understand what ingredients are in the soup, where they came from, and how they interact to fuel microbial metabolism, sequester carbon and nutrients, and drive many of the biogeochemical cycles that are of interest to today’s climate science.”

The reminder of the editing team included Daniel Repeta, Craig Nelson, Zhanfei Lui, Lihini Aluwihare and Craig Carlson. The issue can be accessed at :
