During spring, ammonium oxidation and nitrite oxidation rates were measured in the NW basin of the Mediterranean Sea, from mesotrophic sites (Ligunan Sea and Gulf of Lions) to oligotrophc sites (Balearic Islands). Nitrification rates (average values for 37 measurements) ranged from 72 to 144 nmol of N oxidised 1-' d-', except in the RhBne River plume area where the rates increased to 264-504 nmol l-' d-' because of the riverine inputs of nitrogen. Maximal rates were located around the peak of… CONTINUE READING
