[1] The average composition of the dissolved and particulate products of early degradation of marine phytoplankton has been established for the first time in a coastal upwelling system using a mixing analysis along isopycnal surfaces combined with a stoichiometric model. About 17–18% of the mineralized organic matter is derived from the decomposition of organic particulates, and 16–35% is from the dissolved organic matter. The remaining 50–70% is derived probably from large fast sinking… CONTINUE READING
