    Notes: [Auszug] When a molecule is excited, where and how fast does its excess energy go? The answer to this question is a prerequisite for understanding and predicting the course of many chemical and biological processes. Chemical reactions can take place only when enough internal energy has accumulated in the ...

    Notes: [Auszug] It has been proposed that widespread deficits of nitrate in the ocean, like those observed today, are caused by iron limitation of marine nitrogen fixation. That is, only when iron is sufficiently abundant to satiate nitrogen fixers will the ratio of nitrate to phosphate in the ocean increase ...
