Continental shelf waters surrounding Antarctica are highly productive marine ecosystems that contribute disproportionately to the Southern Ocean sink for anthropogenic CO2. During the spring, intense phytoplankton blooms provide the basis of this dynamic ecosystem. However, adaptations of psychrophilic phytoplankton that enable high rates of primary production at cold temperatures remain poorly understood. I will present research from a six-month field deployment at Palmer Station in the Western Antarctic Peninsula and subsequent laboratory work with psychrophilic diatoms that document key strategies utilized by phytoplankton to achieve high rates of carbon fixation and growth at near freezing temperatures.
