Hidden Hydrogen Cycles in the Ocean

Here’s an article posted in Nature.

According to the article,

In a recent issue of Nature Microbiology, two articles have shed light on the mysterious world of hydrogen cycles in the ocean’s dark interior.

Key findings from the research include:

  • Marine microorganisms: These microorganisms have been found to capitalize on an abundant and accessible energy source, namely hydrogen (H2), which has long been overlooked
  • Physiological capability: The research showcases that a physiological capability thought to be important in the origins of life on Earth has been hiding in plain sight in the modern ocean
