We measured bacterioplankton abundance and productivity during 3 upwelling cycles at a nearshore station off central Chile (36"309S) in January 1986. Standing stock (43 to 113 X 1 0 ' ~ cells m-2 over the 25 m water column) and productivity were lowest during periods of active upwelling and highest during periods of calm or hght winds and water column strabfication. Bactenal productivity peaked 1 to 2 d after primary productivity and varied by about an order of magnitude (0.13 to 1.40 pgC 1-1 h… CONTINUE READING
