We present a 2-yr time series of the oxygen isotopic composition of dissolved inorganic phosphate (dOp) in Monterey Bay, California. dOp can serve as a proxy for phosphate utilization because its approach toward isotopic equilibrium is a function of the degree of biological phosphate cycling. When phosphate is extensively cycled by the biological community in the euphotic zone, the dOp approaches isotopic equilibrium with surrounding water. Our results indicate that dOp in the upper water… CONTINUE READING
