Review on the Dissolution of Biogenic Silica and Its Controls in the Ocean
作者: 王丹娜 ：厦门大学环境与生态学院，厦门;
Abstract: Silicon, which represents 27% of the lithosphere, plays an important role in marine ecosystem, and it makes the linkage with the global carbon cycle and climate change, through the biological pump of CO2. Biogenic silica (BSi) is produced mainly by diatoms, which are the predominant algae in many areas of the world ocean. The dissolution be-havior of BSi can be a bridge for understanding of the ocean Si cycle, because of its close relation with the production, export and burial of BSi. In this paper, the present research progress of the marine BSi dissolution behavior are re-viewed, and the major controlling factors effected the dissolution rate of BSi are discussed from the point of dynamical equations, in addition, four methods determining the dissolution rate of BSi are introduced, including the method prob-lems at present, so as to provide background information for researching of ocean Si cycle in the future.
