Biogeochemistry of Marine Dissolved Organic Matter by Dennis A. Hansell, Craig A. Carlson

By Dennis A. Hansell, Craig A. Carlson

Curiosity in marine dissolved natural topic (DOM) is particularly excessive since it performs a huge function in oceanic and international carbon biking, which in flip affects climate. realizing the approaches thinking about the adjustments of carbon, phosphorus, nitrogen, and different significant parts within the oceans has been a major aim of marine biogeochemists and oceanographers over the last decade.This booklet, in sixteen chapters with over one hundred seventy figures and tables, stories at the significant advances during this quarter via a exotic staff of overseas chemical and organic oceanographers. also, it makes a speciality of the position of DOM in elemental biking - the place the best informational want at the moment exists. organic biking of the main parts via DOM is classified all through, with specific emphasis at the function of marine microbes as energetic brokers within the processing of this materialThe ocean technology community's advances for inclusion of DOM in either environment and international movement types are evaluated

Hedges However, other patterns in these same data sets were curious. 6 /xM of DON at zero DOC (Fig. 8). 0078) corresponds to an atomic C/N of 18. In contrast, Jackson and Williams (1985) found little correlation between seawater DOC and DON contents measured throughout the ocean by persulfate oxidation and noted that most of their individual samples gave DOC/DON ratios higher than Redfield values. They observed, however, that it is the slope of the DOC/DON correlation line for a sample suite, and not the individual ratios, which indicates the C/N ratio within DOM sample sets.
