There is compelling evidence to demonstrate that phytoplankton in major regions of the world's oceans are limited by the availability of certain trace elements, notably iron. Cobalt concentrations in open-ocean waters generally range between 10 and 120 pmol L-1 but such levels were not thought to limit phytoplankton growth. Herein, we present data for total dissolved cobalt and cobalt-complexing ligands for two stations located south (station 200) and north (station 204) of the Antarctic Polar...[Show more]
