Denitrification rates and excess nitrogen gas concentrations in the Arabian Sea oxygen deficient zone
Rates of canonical, i.e. heterotrophic, water-column denitrification were measured by sup(15)N incubation techniques at a number of coastal and open ocean stations in the Arabian Sea. Measurements of N2 :Ar gas ratios were ...
The nitrogen cycle in the Arabian Sea
Despite their importance for the global oceanic nitrogen (N) cycle, estimates of N fluxes in the Arabian Sea remain in considerable uncertainty. In this report, we summarize current knowledge of important processes, including ...
The oceanic fixed nitrogen and nitrous oxide budgets: Moving targets as we enter the anthropocene?
(Institut de Ciencies del Mar de Barcelona, 2001)
New data forced to raise previous estimates of oceanic denitrification. The revised estimate of approx. 450 Tg N yr sup(-1) (Tg = 10 sup(12) g) produces an oceanic fixed N budget with a large deficit (approx. 200 Tg N yr ...
Nitrogen isotopic studies in the suboxic Arabian Sea
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, India, 1998)
Measurements of sup(15)N/ sup(14)N in dissolved molecular nitrogen (N sub(2)), nitrate (NO sub(3) sup(-)) and nitrous oxide (N sub(2)O) and sup(18)O/ sup(16)O in N sub(2)O [expressed as delta sup(15)N and delta sup(18)O, ...
The oxygen minimum zone in the Arabian Sea during 1995
This paper focuses on the characteristics of the oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) as observed in the Arabian Sea over the complete monsoon cycle of 1995. Dissolved oxygen, nitrite, nitrate and density values are used to delineate ...
Nitrogen cycling in the suboxic waters of the Arabian Sea
Arabian Sea contains one of the world's three large oxygen deficient zones (ODZ). Within the ODZ oxygen concentration is vanishingly small between about 200 and 800 m depth and in this depth interval denitrifications is ...
