  • Measurements of interstitial waters in deep wells (0–500 m) in Mururoa and in shallow bores (0–35 m) in Tikehau (French Polynesia) have shown high contents of dissolved nutrients and relatively low salinities, implying a deep oceanic origin. Studies of specific thermal fields within these atolls and carbonate platforms have led to models of deep oceanic water circulation by convection resulting from upward geothermal heat flow. Cold, low-salinity, low-pH, high-CO2, nutrient-rich deep oceanic… CONTINUE READING
