Examples

  • Many estuaries exhibit a negative net ecosystem production (-10 Tmol C yr-1) and are net heterotrophs.

    Coastal zone

  • The ecosystem approach provides an NEP estimate of 235 Tmol C yr-1, a value in good agreement with that provided by Wollast (200 Tmol C year-1) but much higher than the figure of -7 Tmol C yr-1 proposed by Smith & Hollibaugh or the value of 12 Tmol C yr-1 given by Rabouille.

    Coastal zone

  • The contribution of the coastal ocean to marine calcium carbonate production is greater than 40% (23 Tmol CaCO3 yr-1 out of 53 Tmol yr-1).

    Coastal zone

  • This is of the same order of magnitude as the previous estimate of 500 Tmol C yr-1.

    Coastal zone

  • The highest deposition occurs in coral reef habitats (9 Tmol yr-1), followed by banks and embayments (4 Tmol yr-1), carbonate shelves (6 Tmol yr-1) and non-carbonate shelves (4 Tmol year-1).

    Coastal zone

  • Up-scaling the system-level data to the whole coastal zone, provides a GPP value of 789 Tmol C yr-1; or 23% of the global marine gross primary production.
