Abstract. We investigated the photoproduction of ammonium (NH 4 + ) in surface waters of the Cyprus gyre in the central Eastern Mediterranean in May 2002, in 8 on deck irradiations with freshly collected, filtered samples. NH 4 + photoproduction (photoammonification) increased with time-integrated irradiance during the course of irradiations. Photoammonification rates around local noon were 0.4–2.9 nmol L −1 h −1 . Normalised to time integrated irradiance, these rates were 0.9–3.8 pmol L −1 h… CONTINUE READING
