Mapping phytoplankton iron utilization: Insights into Southern Ocean supply mechanisms

Boyd, Philip W.; Arrigo, K.R.; Strzepek, Robert; van Dijken, G.L.


The emerging field of ocean iron biogeochemistry has prompted interest in the identification and quantification of Fe supply mechanisms. However, less attention has been given to estimating biological Fe utilization, and using the magnitude of Fe utilization to enhance our understanding of modes of supply. Here, we combine regionally validated data sets (1997-2007) on remotely sensed net primary production (NPP) with the iron:carbon (Fe:C) molar ratios for resident phytoplankton to produce...[Show more]
