PurposeResearch
ObjectivesIncreased amounts of mixing arising from the internal tide over ridges and seamounts has been recognised for some time, but the biogeochemical consequences of that mixing have not yet been quantified. The Ridgemix project takes as its key hypothesis that the mixing generated by the internal tide over steep ocean seabed topography, such as mid ocean ridges, plays an important role in the biogeochemistry of the ocean. In the subtropical North Atlantic work using noble gas tracers has identified the amounts of nutrient that must be supplied to the region, which is in agreement with the requirements of primary production, but the mechanisms responsible for supplying this nutrient are not understood. Our view in the Ridgemix project is that internal tide mixing over the mid-Atlantic ridge brings deep nutrients upward onto isopycnals that, downstream of the ridge, are accessed by deep winter mixing in the western subtropical Atlantic Ocean. Based on preliminary evidence from earlier research cruises on other projects we also think that the upward mixing of nutrients could have local effects on primary production and plankton community structure immediately above the ridge.

Our cruise track and sampling stations had the following aims:
(i) Quantify the internal mixing and vertical nutrient fluxes at spring and neap tides at sites above the ridge and in the deep water away from the ridge.
(ii) Quantify the general distribution of vertical turbulent mixing along the ridge, in the adjacent deep basin to the west, and across the slopes of the ridge.
(iii) Measure the distribution of nutrients on key isopycnals in water masses before, during and downstream of the mixing over the ridge.
(iv) At sites along the ridge and in the deep basin to the west, quantify the phytoplankton and zooplankton community structures with a particular focus on the deep chlorophyll maximum.
