[1] The availability of iron exerts a significant control on primary production and the export of organic matter over large areas of the ocean, especially those far from land sources. We explore the regulation of the global soft tissue pump of carbon and atmospheric CO2 by the atmospheric delivery of iron in a three-dimensional ocean circulation and biogeochemistry model. There is only a small change in atmospheric CO2 when the aeolian iron source is increased several fold but a significant… CONTINUE READING
