210Po/210Pb dynamics in relation to zooplankton biomass and trophic conditions during an annual cycle in northwestern Mediterranean coastal waters.
Description: Monthly sampling in northwestern Mediterranean coastal waters was undertaken in this study to better understand the relationship between zooplankton biomass and the cycling of the natural radionuclide 210Po/210Pb pair during a one-year period (October 1995-November 1996). In conjunction with mesozooplankton collections and 210Po/210Pb measurements in seawater, zooplankton and their fecal pellets, the biochemical composition of particulate organic matter (POM) was also examined at three depths (0, 20 and 50 m) as an indicator of trophic conditions.
