Marine planktonic ecosystem dynamics in an artificial upwelling area of Japan: Phytoplankton production and biomass fate
Description: Marine phytoplankton production as well as biomass is globally significant. This study hypothesized that a mild increase in nutrients concentrations (by a factor 1-2 higher) from artificial upwelling in oligotrophic water can alter phytoplankton dynamics (biomass, composition and size), and consequently, phytoplankton-derived particulate organic carbon flux.
