Short summary
In the marine environment, sticky sugar-containing gels, termed transparent exopolymeric particles (TEP), are produced from biological sources and physical and chemical processes. These compounds are essential vectors enhancing downward flow of organic matter and its storage at depth. Spatial and temporal dynamics of TEPs were followed for 23 days during the VAHINE mesocosm experiment that investigated the fate of nitrogen and carbon derived from organisms fixing atmospheric N2 (diazotrophs).
