The article considers the main regularities of distribution of biogenic elements in accordance with the dissolved oxygen and hydrological characteristics of the marine environment. To study the spatial distribution of biogenic elements taken three main forms of substances in the marine environment: phosphates, nitrates, silicates. Because these compounds in ocean are crucial importance for the development of life.
Shows the role of hydrodynamic factors that most significantly affect the distribution and redistribution of nutrients in the waters of the North Atlantic. Quantitative evaluation of the nutrient transport system of currents. The calculated weight amount of phosphates transported by the stream per unit time.
