Abstract

Samples were collected from the coastal waters off the states of Washington and California, from the central North Atlantic and northeast Pacific Oceans, and from Chesapeake Bay. Total abundances of ammonium oxidizers ranged from 107 cells 1-1 in Chesapeake Bay and 105 cells 1-1 in inshore ocean waters to 103 to 104 cells 1-1 in the open ocean. A potential nitrification rate was calculated. Microbial nitrification rates in the water column can be substantial and may be sufficient to balance the annual new production demand for nitrate.-from Author
