Africa. These changes agree with independent calculations based on uc-uptake experiments and are consistent with the circulation of the upwelling system. The ratio of nitrogen decrease to oxygen increase in the photic zone is nearly identical to the Redfield ratio of 5.18 μg-at N/ml 02. In addition to its close couple with nitrate uptake, the oxygen increased directly with the chlorophyll in the offshore-moving waters.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50885||ISSN:||0022-2402||Source:||Journal of Marine Research [ISSN 0022-2402], v. 40, n 3, p. 615-641|
