Mesoscale physical processes (for example eddies, frontal meanders and planetary waves) can play important roles in controlling ocean biogeochemistry. We examined spatial variations in upper ocean (0–100 m) nutrient inventories, N2 fixing microorganism diversity and abundance, and rates of N2 fixation in an anticyclonic eddy near Station ALOHA (22° 45′ N, 158° 00′ W) in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG). In July 2005, satellite-based sea surface altimetry and ocean color observation… CONTINUE READING
