Dilution experiments were performed during two transects across the central equatorial Pacific (3°N–3°S, 140°W) to estimate growth and mortality rates of select phytoplankton groups distinguished by their characteristic pigments. The first transect was conducted in February–March 1992 during a moderate El Niño event; the second transect took place in August–September 1992, under normal upwelling conditions.
