Parameter mole_​concentration_​of_​diatoms_​in_​sea_​water_​expressed_​as_​nitrogen


Properties of the parameter mole_​concentration_​of_​diatoms_​in_​sea_​water_​expressed_​as_​nitrogen
Name mole_concentration_of_diatoms_in_sea_water_expressed_as_nitrogen
Description Mole concentration means moles (amount of substance) per unit volume and is used in the construction mole_concentration_of_X_in_Y, where X is a material constituent of Y. The construction expressed_as_nitrogen means that the mole concentration is that of nitrogen atoms due to the diatoms. Diatoms are single-celled phytoplankton with an external skeleton made of silica. Phytoplankton are autotrophic prokaryotic or eukaryotic algae that live near the water surface where there is sufficient light to support photosynthesis.
