Pelagic iron cycling during the subtropical spring bloom, east of New Zealand

Ellwood, Michael; Nodder, Scott D; King, Andrew L.; Hutchins, D.A.; Wilhelm, Steven; Boyd, Philip W.


Upper ocean cycling of dissolved and particulate iron was investigated within an eddy during a study of the annual subtropical phytoplankton bloom east of New Zealand in the austral spring of 2008. During this GEOTRACES process study, dissolved iron surface mixed layer concentrations were initially high at ~0.6nmolkg-1 and declined to ~0.03nmolkg-1 due to biological consumption during a diatom-dominated bloom. The consequent iron limitation of the phytoplankton assemblage resulted in the...[Show more]
