The production rates of C37 alkenones in the euphotic zone of Sagami Bay, Japan were determined by the Clabeling technique in conjunction with gas chromatography±mass spectrometry. The maximum in the alkenone production rate (C37:2 plus C37:3 alkenones) was observed at 5 m depth and the speci®c production rate, calculated from the rate of production relative to standing stock in suspended particles, was 0.64 dayÿ1 at this depth. Temperature, based on the newly-produced alkenone unsaturation… CONTINUE READING
