Abstract
    The rate of release of dissolved organic matter during phytoplankton photosynthesis was measured in eutrophic and oligotrophic areas of the Northeast Pacific Ocean. A method using liquid scintillation counting techniques is described that allows sample preparation to be done simply and accurately at sea. the absolute amounts of dissolved organic matter release were generally greatest near the surface and in eutrophic waters, but relative to total production were greatest in oligotrophic areas. A close correlation was found between the production of particulate organic matter and the release of dissolved organic matter.
