Iron Availability Influences the Tolerance of Southern Ocean Phytoplankton to Warming and Elevated Irradiance

Andrew, Sarah; Morell, Hugh; Strzepek, Robert; Boyd, Phillip; Ellwood, Michael


The Southern Ocean is responsible for approximately 40% of oceanic carbon uptake through biological and physical processes. In the Southern Ocean, phytoplankton growth is limited by low iron (Fe) and light supply. Climate model projections for the Southern Ocean indicate that temperature, underwater irradiance and Fe supply are likely to change simultaneously in the future due to increasing anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. The individual effects of these environmental properties...[Show more]
