Short summary
Planktonic foraminifera are an important component of the marine carbon/carbonate cycle, yet the environmental controls on their abundances are still debated. In our study, we see larger foraminifera fluxes, particularly of heavy species, during winter when nutrients are mixed into the surface waters or during eddy mixing. Climatic factors that control mixing could therefore control the flux of planktonic foraminfera and the carbon/carbonate flux on seasonal and decadal timescales.
