Paper by Relliti et al. coauthored by N. Ogrinc and B. Krajnc has been recognised by the Editor of Water as an excellent contribution and thus was included in the Editor's choice list.
In collaboration with the Institute Nazionale di Oceanografia e Geofisica Sperimentale – OGS Trieste, Italy a mesocosmos experiment was performed in order to decode how different sources (natural, anthropogenic) of CO2 influence biological systems (phytoplankton) using stable carbon isotopes. The experiments prove that phytoplankton isotopic composition quickly responds to changes in the δ13C of the medium, making this approach a promising and low-impact tool for detecting CO2 submarine leakages from carbon capture sites (CCS).
