We analyze North Pacific GEOSECS (1970s) and WOCE (1990s) observations to examine potential decadal trends of the marine biological carbon pump. Nitrate concentrations ð1⁄2NO 3 Þ and apparent oxygen utilization (AOU) decreased significantly in intermediate waters (by 0.6 and 2:9 mmol kg ; respectively, at sy 1⁄4 27:4 kg m ; corresponding to E1050 m). In shallow waters (above roughly 750 m) 1⁄2NO 3 and AOU increased, though the changes were not statistically significant. A sensitivity study with… CONTINUE READING
