    Small Phytoplankton N reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of nitrogen of the Small (smaller than 2 micro metres) phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton N reserves divided by Phytoplankton N is a number between 0 and 1 and represents the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of nitrogen.

    Large Phytoplankton N reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of nitrogen of the Large (larger than 2 micro metres) phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton N reserves divided by Phytoplankton N is a number between 0 and 1 and represents the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of nitrogen.

    Microphytobenthos N reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of nitrogen of the benthic microalgae (fast-sinking diatoms that are suspended primarily in the top layer of sediment porewaters) phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton N reserves divided by Phytoplankton N is a number between 0 and 1 and represents the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of nitrogen.

    Trichodesmium N reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of nitrogen of the trichodesmium phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton N reserves divided by Phytoplankton N is a number between 0 and 1 and represents the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of nitrogen.
