15N enrichment in the surface Particulate Organic Nitrogen of the north-eastern Arabian Sea from the middle to the waning phase of the winter monsoon: possible causes

S. Kumar and R. Ramesh

Abstract. A temporal increase of ~5‰ in the average nitrogen isotopic composition (δ15NPON) of surface particulate organic nitrogen was observed in the open north-eastern Arabian Sea during January to late February-early March 2003, despite the presence of T. erithraeum (up to ~11%), a diazotroph that fixes atmospheric N2, in the latter period. Hydrographic conditions and residence time of nitrate in the water column suggested that this increase could be a combined effect of denitrification in the subsurface layer and inefficient utilization of nitrate entrained in the water column during January.
