The ocean plays a crucial role in regulating Earth’s climate. Half of the photosynthesis occurring on the planet occurs In the sunlit zone of the ocean. A surprising amount of photosynthesis is exchanged between single-celled plankton in the form of gaseous molecules, including well known solvents such as benzene, toluene, and acetone. Efficient gas transfer between plankton limits sea-air gas emissions that have wide-ranging climate impacts.
