    Small Phytoplankton P reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of phosphorus of the Small (smaller than 2 micro metres) phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton P reserves divided by (Phytoplankton N * 1/16 31/14) is a number between 0 and 1 and represent the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of phosphorus.

    Large Phytoplankton P reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of phosphorus of the Large (larger than 2 micro metres) phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton P reserves divided by (Phytoplankton N * 1/16 31/14) is a number between 0 and 1 and represent the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of phosphorus.

    Microphytobenthos P reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of phosphorus of the benthic microalgae (fast-sinking diatoms that are suspended primarily in the top layer of sediment porewaters) phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton P reserves divided by (Phytoplankton N * 1/16 31/14) is a number between 0 and 1 and represent the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of phosphorus.

    Trichodesmium P reserve

    Total non-structural biomass of phosphorus of the trichodesmium phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton P reserves divided by (Phytoplankton N * 1/16 31/14) is a number between 0 and 1 and represent the factor by which phytoplankton growth is inhibited due to the internal reserves of phosphorus.
