Axenic cultures of 25 species of unicellular marine algae were tested for their ability to utilize nine common amino acids, supplied at high concentrations in batch culture, as a nitrogen source; most species were able to use several amino acids,...
1974-03 (iso8601)
Few studies have examined the partitioning of organic matter in upwelling systems, despite the fact that these systems play a key role in carbon and nitrogen budgets in the ocean. We examined the production and partitioning of...

Uptake of nitrogenous nutrients by microplankton off the Washington and Oregon coasts was measured during the 1985 upwelling period. Nitrogen uptake rates in low-NO3- waters (<5 μM) were 0.020–0.258 μmol N liter-1 h-1 and were primarily supported...

The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that NH4+ uptake by heterotrophic bacteria in the subarctic Pacific is C limited. Addition of glucose (0.5–1.0 μM) stimulated NH4+ uptake in unfractionated water but had no effect on bacterial...

Flux estimates show that upward mixing of the deep-water nitrate pool accounts for more than 85% of the total new nitrogen input to the euphotic zone of Crater Lake. Because measured primary productivity (360 mg C m-2 d-1) is 10–30 times higher...

The concentration of dissolved molybdenum has been determined in several profiles from the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The salinity-normalized concentration is essentially constant in all open-ocean samples (107 nM, lσ = 2.5 nM). The dissolved...

This study assesses the role of the atmospheric dry fallout as a source of new nitrogen and phosphorus to the surface Levantine seawater. Leaching experiments of inorganic nitrogen (LINO-3, LINH+4) and phosphorus (LIPO4), using SE Mediterranean...

We present observations of the evolution of a deep-mixing event in a deep, temperate lake. The observations were obtained from thermistors mounted on a long-term mooring in the lake. The event seems to have originated near 150-m depth and resulted...
1997 (iso8601)
Ammonium uptake and regeneration rates were measured in time course experiments with 15N as a tracer. Both ammonium uptake and regeneration rates measured over 12 to 18 h remained essentially constant. However, as the length of the incubations...
1995 (iso8601)
The relationship between nitrogen (N) availability and the growth of macroalgae in a seasonal upwelling region (Yaquina Head, Oregon, USA) was investigated. Water column nutrient concentrations were relatively high and stable during the winter,...
1989 (iso8601)
The stable isotope 15N was used to measure nitrogen uptake in the coastal upwelling region off Oregon and Washington, USA, where nitrate concentrations in the surface water ranged from 0.7 to 49.1 μM. Nanoplankton biomass (1 to 10 pm) was...
1988 (iso8601)
Despite the importance of the spring phytoplankton bloom off Oregon as a food source for zooplankton, little is known about the sources of phytoplankton seed stock for the bloom or its timing. Experiments were conducted in the late winter to...
2004 (iso8601)
Until recently, studies of the fate of primary production in coastal upwelling systems have focused mainly on export through sinking of particulate organic matter (POM). In week-long deck incubations conducted during the upwelling season off...

Dissolved C, N, P, and Si budgets for Tomales Bay, California, have been used to solve simultaneous stoichiometric equations which describe a plausible material balance for net organic matter reactions in the bay. Dissolved Si and P were both...
1987 (iso8601)
A pair of hydrographic sections, one north and one south of Cape Blanco at 42.9N, was sampled in five summers (1998–2000 and 2002–2003). The NH line at 44.6N lies about 130 km south of the Columbia River, and spans a relatively wide shelf off...
2005 (iso8601)
On average, the water column of Lake Superior is undersaturated with respect to dissolved oxygen and supersaturated with respect to carbon dioxide during the summer-stratified period. On the basis of temporal changes in water column dissolved...

Active inputs of thermally and chemically enriched fluids at the bottom of Crater Lake create small vertical and horizontal heterogeneities in the deep-lake temperature and salt distribution. Using an internally recording CTD and a precise...
1992 (iso8601)
Small temporal and spatial variations in the distribution of dissolved oxygen in Crater Lake, Oregon, are used to estimate the mean age of the lake’s deep water, the flux of labile organic carbon to the deep lake, and the influence of hydrothermal...
1996 (iso8601)
The objective of this study was to compare two techniques for estimating benthic fluxes of nutrients (nitrate, phosphate, and silicic acid) and Ge/Si flux ratios. In situ flux chambers were deployed, and cores were collected and incubated at 9...

Seasonal variations in the hydrography of the waters over the continental shelf off Oregon were observed in a set of hydrographic data collected along 44º39′N at intervals of a few weeks to a few months from 1961 through 1970. The temperature is...
1977 (iso8601)
The seasonal variation in the alongshore velocity field is inferred from direct current observations made over the Oregon continental shelf at various locations and irregular intervals since 1965. Monthly mean currents are computed and compared...
1975-01 (iso8601)
We measured oxygen consumption rates, the activities of citrate synthase (CS) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and protein contents for over 30 species of deep-sea pelagic Copepoda. The lowest oxygen consumption rates were measured in Euaugaptilus...
