This study documents the changes in nutrient fluxes associated with internal tidal bores arriving on Florida Keys coral reefs and points to biological use of subthermocline nitrate brought onshore by this mechanism. Internal bores on Conch Reef, Florida Keys, are associated with concentrations of 1.0‐4.0 mmol L 21 nitrate (NO ) and 0.1‐0.3 2 3 mmol L 21 soluble reactive phosphate (SRP) and onshore flow velocities of 0.1‐0.3 m s 21 . The arrival of internal bores causes 10‐40 fold increases in… CONTINUE READING
