Carbon Budgets of Mesozooplankton Copepod Communities in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean - Regional and Vertical Patterns between 24°N and 21°S
Description: The copepods' impact on vertical carbon flux was assessed for stratified depth layers down to 2000 m at six stations along a transect between 24°N and 21°S in the eastern Atlantic Ocean in October/November 2012. Total copepod community consumption ranged from 202‐604 mg C m‐2 d‐1, with highest ingestion rates in the tropical North Atlantic. [Source: Global Biogeochemical Cycles]
