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, ...
Isotopic composition of nitrate in the central Arabian Sea and eastern tropical North Pacific: A tracer for mixing and nitrogen cycles
(American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, 1998)
The delta sup(15)N composition of nitrate and N sub(2) gas was measured in the eastern tropical North Pacific (ETNP) and central Arabian Sea (AS) suboxic regions. The delta sup(15)N of nitrate increased from 6 ppt at 2,500 ...
Nitrogen cycling in the suboxic Arabian Sea: Implications for atmospheric chemistry and climate
(Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi (India), 1999)
An acute oxygen deficiency at mid-depths in the Arabian SEa leads to large-scale microbial conversion (denitrification) of the oxidised combined nitrogen species to molecular nitrogen (N sub(2)) at an estimated rate of ...
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 ...
