New CAICE Nature Paper on Bacteria and Viruses Ejected from the Ocean

A new CAICE Collaborative publication entitled “Taxon-Specific Aerosolization of Bacteria and Viruses in an Experimental Ocean-Atmosphere Mesocosm”  was published on the May 22 issue of Nature Communications and explores the transfer of viruses and bacteria to sea spray aerosols.  The study provides a foundational basis for future studies that could investigate the role of these microorganisms in the climate and their possible impact on public health when breathed as aerosolized particles.  To read the full press release, click on the “View Article” link below.
