Short summary
Both biotic 231Pa and 230Th and abiotic 231Pa and 230Th have been implemented in the ocean model of CESM. Under present-day climate forcing, our model is able to simulate water column 231Pa and 230Th activity and the sediment 231Pa-to-230Th activity ratio in good agreement with observations. In HOSING experiments, the biotic and abiotic sediment 231Pa-to-230Th activity ratios behave similarly over large areas of low productivity, but can differ substantially in some regions of high productivity.
Both biotic 231Pa and 230Th and abiotic 231Pa and 230Th have been implemented in the ocean model...
