  • never exhausted in surface waters, and phytoplankton biomass is less than expected. Martin (6, 7) suggested that it is the scarcity of biologically available iron in these high-nutrient, low-chlorophyll (HNLC) regions that makes it impossible for the phytoplankton to use the excess N and P. He also recognized that atmospheric dust from land is an important source of iron for the sea and that HNLC regions receive a relatively small dust flux. Furthermore, he noted that ice core records of… CONTINUE READING
