Abstract: Abstract:The North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG) is the largest ecosystem on Earth, and it plays a critical role in global ocean productivity and carbon cycling. Here, we report a rare and striking ~2000-km-long phytoplankton bloom that lasted over one month in the western part of the NPSG in summer 2003. The bloom resulted from the co-occurrence of a northward-shifted North Equatorial Current (NEC) supplying additional phosphate, and strong eddy activity that fueled productivity and spread chlorophyll mainly through horizontal stirring. The extensive one-month bloom had a maximum Chl concentration of six times the summer mean value and collectively fixed an additional five teragrams (5 × 1012 g) of carbon above the summer average. An increase in the pCO2 during the bloom suggests that most of the additionally fixed carbon was rapidly consumed.
