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 ...
Diversity of nitrite reductase genes (nirS) in the denitrifying water column of the coastal Arabian Sea
Denitrification often occurs in the water column, underlying zones of intense productivity and decomposition in upwelling regions. In the denitrifying zone off the southwest coast of India, high concentrations of nitrite ...
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 ...
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 ...
