Abstract
Field surveys of phytoplankton metabolism, based on oxygen changes, were made in Narragansett Bay from 1971-73. Annual daytime net production varied from 218 g C per sq m per yr in the East Passage to 429 g C per sq m per yr in the Providence River. A set of microcosms, operated so as to simulate the Bay, had an annual net production of 276 g C per sq m per yr and a night respiration of 163 g C per sq m per yr resulting in an annual net carbon available for export or to the benthos of 113 g C per sq m per yr.
