Article first published online: 10 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50250

Key Points

  • Nitrogen fixation rates are higher during upwelling than non-upwelling times
  • Diazotrophy is fueled by low N:P, iron rich water that is upwelled
  • Annually, 47 Gmol of new nitrogen is fixed in upwelled waters
