Nitrous oxide cycling in the Arabian Sea

  title={Nitrous oxide cycling in the Arabian Sea},
  author={Hermann W. Bange and Spyridon Rapsomanikis and Meinrat O Andreae},
Depth profiles of dissolved nitrous oxide (N20) were measured inthe central and western Arabian Sea during four cruises in May and July-August 1995 and May-July 1997 as part of the German contribution to the Arabian Sea Process Study of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study. The vertical distribution f N20 in the water column on a transect along 65øE showed a characteristic double-peak structure, indicating production of N20 associated with steep oxygen gradients atthe top and bottom of the oxygen… CONTINUE READING
