Three bioassay experiments were conducted in August of 2014 during the R/V Hugh R. Sharp cruise HRS1414 which generated measurements of dissolved inorganic nitrogen, chlorophyll-a and primary productivity. Treatments included various nutrient (N,Fe,P) additions and rainwater. This dataset was utilized in the following publication: Sedwick. P. N., et al. "Assessing phytoplankton nutritional status and potential impact of wet deposition in seasonally oligotrophic waters of the Mid-Atlantic Bight." Geophysical Research Letters (2018): doi: 10.1002/2017GL075361 For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

Phosphate availability and the ultimate control of new nitrogen input by nitrogen fixation in the tropical Pacific Ocean Moutin, T.; Karl, David M.; Duhamel, Solange; Rimmelin, P.; Raimbault, P.; Van Mooy, Benjamin A. S.; Claustre, Hervé (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2008-01-29)Due to the low atmospheric input of phosphate into the open ocean, it is one of the key nutrients that could ultimately control primary production and carbon export into the deep ocean. The observed trend over the last 20 ...
Iron availability limits the ocean nitrogen inventory stabilizing feedbacks between marine denitrification and nitrogen fixation Moore, J. Keith; Doney, Scott C. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-04-04)Recent upward revisions in key sink/source terms for fixed nitrogen (N) in the oceans imply a short residence time and strong negative feedbacks involving denitrification and N fixation to prevent large swings in the ocean ...
