Abstract The distribution of manganese was investigated during a spring bloom in Funka Bay by chemically segregating dissolved, soluble and refractory Mn. The concentration of dissolved Mn changed slightly owing to assimilation by phytoplankton and dissolution of aerosol particles. A simple mass balance was adopted in this bloom period to clarify the dynamics of Mn in the euphotic zone. From this result, the assimilated Mn was estimated to be 10.6 μmol m −2 day −1 . However, it was observed… CONTINUE READING
