Vertical profiles of the electron transport system from the ocean surface to 5,000 m suggest a rapid decrease in the oxygen utilization rate from 300 µl O2 liter−1 yr−1 (0.8 µl O2 liter−1 day−1) in the cuphotic zone to 3 µl O2 lite −1 yr−1 at 500 m and a more gradual decrease to 0.5 µl O2 liter−1 yr−1 at 5,000 m.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50907||ISSN:||0024-3590||DOI:||10.4319/lo.1971.16.1.0060||Source:||Limnology and Oceanography [ISSN 0024-3590], v. 16, p. 60-70|
