This dataset is a compilation of primary productivity measurements from a total of 449 stations in the Ross Sea. Data were collected on multiple cruises conducted from 1983 to 2006 on USCGC Glacier, RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer, R/V Polar Duke, USCGC Polar Star, and USCGC Polar Sea. These data were published in a variety of papers, including Wilson et al. (1986), Smith et al. (1999, 2000, 2013), and Nelson and Smith (1991). Many of the productivity data are available within individual data reports available on BCO-DMO (e.g., AESOPS, CORSACS), but others were collected prior to the initiation of a centralized data center and hence are not available except in this dataset. Integrated station data are provided in the attached Supplemental File titled "Integrated Water Column Station Data" (.csv file). See the "Supplemental Files" section of the BCO-DMO dataset landing page for more information on the integrated station data. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

The annual cycle of gross primary production, net community production, and export efficiency across the North Pacific Ocean Palevsky, Hilary I.; Quay, Paul D.; Lockwood, Deirdre E.; Nicholson, David P. (John Wiley & Sons, 2016-02-27)We measured triple oxygen isotopes and oxygen/argon dissolved gas ratios as nonincubation-based geochemical tracers of gross oxygen production (GOP) and net community production (NCP) on 16 container ship transects across ...
Stanley, Rachel H. R.; Kirkpatrick, John B.; Cassar, Nicolas; Barnett, Bruce A.; Bender, Michael L. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-10-12)Net community production (NCP) and gross primary production (GPP) are two key metrics for quantifying the biological carbon cycle. In this study, we present a detailed characterization of NCP and GPP in the western equatorial ...
Relative importance of chemoautotrophy for primary production in a light exposed marine shallow hydrothermal system Gomez-Saez, Gonzalo V.; Pop Ristova, Petra; Sievert, Stefan M.; Elvert, Marcus; Hinrichs, Kai-Uwe; Bühring, Solveig I. (Frontiers Media, 2017-04-21)The unique geochemistry of marine shallow-water hydrothermal systems promotes the establishment of diverse microbial communities with a range of metabolic pathways. In contrast to deep-sea vents, shallow-water vents not ...
