Analysed Particulate Organic Matter data, Nutrient data and Nitrate isotope data from the 2017 Integrated Ecosystem Programme: Southern Benguela (IEP:SB) cruises conducted in February, May, and August 2017. The IEP:SB is a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional platform to undertake relevant science in the Southern Benguela; also functioning as a platform for collaboration and learning.
Nitrate+nitrite concentrations were measured on a Lachat QuickChem flow injection analysis platform in a configuration with a detection limit of 0.1 µM, while phosphate and nitrite concentrations were measured using standard benchtop techniques on a Thermo Scientific Genesis 30 Visible spectrophotometer in a configuration with a detection limit of 0.05 µM. The N and O isotope ratios of the N2O gas were analysed using a Delta V Advantage continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometer interfaced with an online N2O extraction and purification system.
