Denitrifying bacterial community composition changes associated with stages of denitrification in oxygen minimum zones
Denitrification in the ocean is a major sink for fixed nitrogen in the global N budget, but the process is geographically restricted to a few oceanic regions, including three oceanic oxygen minimum zones (OMZ) and hemipelagic ...
Seasonal oxygen deficiency over the western continental shelf of India
The North Indian Ocean contains about two-third of the global continental-margin area affected by natural oxygen deficiency (O2 less than 0.2 mL L sup(-1)) in the water column. Also, the littoral countries of this ...
Hydrochemistry of the Bay of Bengal: Possible reasons for a different water-column cycling of carbon and nitrogen from the Arabian Sea
A study on biogeochemical cycling in the western Bay of Bengal was undertaken during two seasons (pre-southwest monsoon and northeast monsoon of 1991). Relationships of the conservative tracers NO and PO with potential ...
