Low- and high-frequency oscillatory winds synergistically enhance nutrient entrainment and phytoplankton at fronts
(AGU PublicationsJournal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 2017-02-10)
When phytoplankton growth is limited by low nutrient concentrations, full-depth-integrated phytoplankton biomass increases in response to intermittent mixing events that bring nutrient-rich waters into the sunlit surface ...
Synoptic-to-planetary scale wind variability enhances phytoplankton biomass at ocean fronts
(American Geophysical UnionJournal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 2017-06-01)
In nutrient-limited conditions, phytoplankton growth at fronts is enhanced by winds, which drive upward nutrient fluxes via enhanced turbulent mixing and upwelling. Hence, depth-integrated phytoplankton biomass can be 10 ...
