Kīlauea lava fuels phytoplankton bloom off Hawai‘i Island

Dr. Angela Knapp, Oceanography professor for the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science at FSU was part of a multiuniversity research team that revealed that this biological response hinged on unexpectedly high concentrations of nitrate, despite the negligible amount of nitrogen in basaltic lava. The research team determined that nitrate was brought to the surface ocean when heat from the substantial input of lava into the ocean warmed nutrient-rich deep waters and caused them to rise up, supplying the sunlit layer with nutrients.
