Protein and organic phosphorus in particulate matter and mesoplankton fraction in waters of the East Pacific, supplement to: Agatova, Alina I; Sapozhnikov, Victor V; Vintovkin, Victor R (1985): Effect of seston phosphatase activity on the mineralization rate of phosphorus and its turnover time in the production-destruction cycle. Oceanology, 25(1), 50-56Alina I Agatova, Victor V Sapozhnikov & Victor R Vintovkin
Vertical distribution of organic phosphorus and phosphatase activity was studied in the Southeast Pacific Ocean. The average rate of mineralization of organic phosphorus in the 0-200 m layer was shown to differ by a factor of 5-10 in oligotrophic and eutrophic areas, while residence time of phosphorus in production-destruction cycles differed by a factor of only 2-5, apparently because of both concentration of organic phosphorus and phosphorolysis rate increased simultaneously in the areas.
