Title:
Revisiting the Redfield Ratio


Abstract:
The Redfield ratio is the atomic ratio of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus in phytoplankton and deep ocean waters. Although C:N:P has often been treated as a constant 106:16:1 there is compelling evidence that it is variable. The causes of this variability and implications for ocean biogeochemical modeling will be discussed.
