Recent literature indicates that dissolved organic carbon (DOC) may accumulate in productive surface waters. Such accumulation will allow export of DOC to the aphotic zone by diffusion and downwelling. As an alternative to models based on low degradability, we here propose a mechanism where bacterial carbon consumption is restricted due to food web mechanisms controlling both growth and biomass of the bacteria: growth rate is kept low by bacteria-phytoplankton competition for mineral nutrients… CONTINUE READING
