Nutrients measured from water bottle samples during METEOR cruise M156


This dataset includes measured and calculated data over the epipelagic layer (0-200 m depth) of 25 stations with 14 of them inside or in the vicinity of a cyclonic eddy that formed off Mauritania along the ∼ 900 km zonal corridor between Mauritania and the Cabo Verde islands in the eastern Tropical North Atlantic during the M156 cruise on the RV Meteor from July 3rd to August 1st 2019. Seawater samples were collected using 10 L Niskin bottles attached to the CTD Rosette. Ammonium was analysed based on Solórzano (1969, and nitrate, nitrite, phosphate and silicate were measured photometrically with continuous-flow analysis on an auto-analyser based on Hansen and Koroleff, (1999,
