Nitrogen and phosphorus exist in the ocean in the form of both inorganic (mineral) and organic compounds, which may occur in dissolved and suspended state in the ocean waters, and in the sediments. Inorganic and organic forms of these elements are the most essential biogenic constituents of ocean waters, and being functionally involved in the processes of living organisms, are subjected to a rapid turnover.
