Recent experimental data from the subtropical NE Atlantic appear to support the prevalence of net heterotrophy in unproductive pelagic ecosystems. However, the proximity of these studies to the NW African upwelling does not exclude the possibility that remote areas of the oceanic gyres are in metabolic balance. Here we present measurements of plankton gross photosynthesis (GPP) and community respiration (CR) made during a latitudinal transect (Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT) cruise 11, 491N… CONTINUE READING
