A dichotomy exists between rates of nitrogen fixation directly measured by biological techniques, and rates inferred from the geochemical distributions of excess nitrate within the thermocline of the North Atlantic Ocean. Part of the dichotomy relates to the temporal and spatial uncoupling between the event (i.e., nitrogen fixation by diazotrophs) and signal (i.e., excess nitrate (DINxs) in the thermocline), as well as the interannual variability of both. Here, temporal variability of excess… CONTINUE READING
