Early diagenesis of organic matter in sediments off the coast of Peru
Measured rates of SO4 and NH4 were used to estimate organic matter regeneration from the sediments in an area of intense upwelling and high primary production off Peru. While the estimated rates of remineralization were ...
Benthic biomass in the Pisco, Peru upwelling
Quantitative benthic samples were taken off Peru in and adjacent to the Pisco upwelling in an attempt to assess the effects of extremes in productivity and dissolved oxygen on the distribution of biomass (organic cabon). ...
Benthic production and processes off Baja California, Northwest Africa and Peru: a classification of benthic subsystems in upwelling ecosystems
(Instituto de Investigaciones Pesqueras., 1985)
Estimates of the standing stocks, secondary production and metabolism of the benthos have been compared in the coastal upwelling ecosystems off northwest Africa, Baja California, and southern Peru. Northwest Africa is ...
