Short summary
A large anomalously warm water patch appeared in the NE Pacific in winter 2013–14 and persisted through 2016. Its effect on biological carbon export was determined using O2 and dissolved inorganic carbon data from a profiling float and a surface mooring. Results show the carbon export decreased after the first year when warmer water invaded and then returned to the previous value, with a similar trend in phytoplankton abundance and corresponding changes in phytoplankton community composition.
