Abstract The biogeochemical cycle of arsenic was examined in the water column across the North Atlantic from 39° to 17°N as part of the US GEOTRACES North Atlantic study (GEOTRACES Section GA03). Results show limited nutrient-like distribution of As 5+ , and upper ocean maxima in As 3+ and methylated As as found in many other studies In the oligotrophic water masses, microbial communities, i.e. phytoplankton, appear to favor the reduction to As 3+ instead of methylation as detoxification of As… CONTINUE READING
