AbstractWe report on studies of the carbon balance of the upper water column, done as part of the JGOFS North Atlantic Bloom Experiment, over a 13-day period, at 47°N, 20°W, during the 1989 spring phytoplankton bloom. Gross carbon production was calculated from data on 18O gross O 2 production and from 14C production as well. Net carbon production was calculated from net O 2 production rates measured in vitro, as well as from changes in the inventories of nutrients and O 2 along with O 2 evasion rates by gas exchange. Gross carbon production during this period was measured to be 1.83 mol m -2, and net production was 0.68 mol m -2. Of this net carbon production, 0.30 mol m -2 was stored in the euphotic zone as particulate organic carbon, and 0.09 mol m -2 rained out to depths >150 m. The remainder was remineralized to DIC in the 50-150 m depth interval, with perhaps some DOC storage in the upper 150 m. © 1992.
