Few studies have examined the partitioning of organic matter in upwelling systems, despite the fact that these systems play a key role in carbon and nitrogen budgets in the ocean. We examined the production and partitioning of phytoplankton-derived organic matter in deck incubations off Oregon during the upwelling season. During exponential growth of the phytoplankton, $78% of total accumulated organic matter was in particulate (POM) form. This suggests that dissolved organic matter (DOM) is a… CONTINUE READING
