Short summary
We investigated the nitrate N, O isotopic composition for the Southern Ocean Kerguelen Plateau area, aiming at understanding the N-cycling in this naturally iron fertilized area characterized by large recurrent phytoplankton blooms. The system is characterized by moderate consumption of nitrate over the season while silicic acid, on the contrary, becomes depleted, suggesting significant recycling of N. Mixed layer nitrate isotopic signatures corroborate this.
