WAMSI Node 1.1.3 - Shelf scale primary production and nutrient uptake dynamics (SS200704)
In May 2007 (the beginning of the seasonal increase in chlorophyll a concentration) we investigated the spatial distribution of primary production. C13 uptake was determined on 12 cross-shelf transects between 22.5S and 34S. On each transect, three stations (50m, 300m and 2000m depth) were sampled for primary production. In addition we sampled 3 additional stations across an eddy.
