dc.description.abstract This paper reports on an attempt to estimate carbon and nitrogen flow, from phytoplankton through the bacterioplankton, in the SIBEX I survey area. The work was included in the SIBEX I programme as an adjunct to the main thrust of the programme but with a view to identifying processes deserving of further study during SIBEX II. From the data it seems likely that regenerated nitrogen may contribute 50 % or more of phytoplankton requirements, and chemoautotrophic nitrification rates below the euphotic zone are likely to be of importance in sustaining the high values for nitrate normally observed in Antarctic waters. en_ZA
