A relationship between primary production and the depth of 100% oxygen saturation is used to calculate the primary production in the tropical Atlantic Ocean during the Equalant 1 and 2 cruises (1963) and to improve the maps made previously from the measured 14C data. The comparison between calculated and measured values shows a rather good agreement between them but the calculated values being much more numerous than the measured ones allow a more accurate mapping than the measured values can do.
