Microbial Nitrogen Transformations in the Oxygen Minimum Zone off Peru, 01 February 1985 to 05 March 1985 (NODC Accession 9200026)

NITROP - 85 was the major field of experiment of an N.S.F. funded program entitled "Microbial Nitrogen Transformations in the Oxygen Minimum Zone off Peru". this project focused on obtaining a better understanding of the microbially mediated changes in nitrogen pathways and the controls on these pathways in and at the boundaries of the oxygen deficient water masses (O2 < 0.05 ml/l) found off Peru. The somewhat "random walk" nature of our cruise track and the existence of multi-cast stations reflects this emphasis. Considerable effort was expended on finding the right conditions to test various aspects of our hypotheses, and once a favorable site was located, many casts were necessary to obtain the large volume samples needed for some of our experiments. Since particle maxima appear to be well correlated with the nitrite maxima that are imbedded in the core of the oxygen deficient water masses, we also determined optical characteristics of the water at our sampling sites. Primary productivity and chlorophyll observations were also made during NITROP - 85.

Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information accurately represents all available information from the legacy database at the time that this description was created. However, proper attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis.
