  • AbstractDiatoms in the Southern Ocean are limited by iron and light, and therefore produce little biomass. Sufficient biomass for analysis under these conditions requires large sample volumes, and diatom samples are therefore often pre-concentrated on a filter. A method for the digestion of diatom cells on polycarbonate filters, that is also suitable for trace metal analysis, is described here. Additional analysis by inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) is used for… CONTINUE READING
