Contribution of riverine nutrients to the silicon biogeochemistry of the global ocean - a model study
Description: An understanding of coastal biogeochemistry is improved by coupling a high resolution database of riverine nutrient fluxes to the global biogeochemical ocean general circulation model MPI-OM/HAMOCC5. Focusing on silicon, but including the whole suite of nutrients, the model finds the largest effects on nutrient concentrations occur in hot spots such as the Amazon plume, the Arctic - with high nutrient inputs in relation to its total volume, and areas of high human activity.
