Impacts of increasing anthropogenic soluble iron and nitrogen deposition on ocean biogeochemistry

  title={Impacts of increasing anthropogenic soluble iron and nitrogen deposition on ocean biogeochemistry},
  author={Aparna Krishnamurthy and Jason Keith Moore and Natalie Mahowald and Chao Luo and Scott C Doney and Keith Lindsay and Charles S. Zender},
[1] We present results from transient sensitivity studies with the Biogeochemical Elemental Cycling (BEC) ocean model to increasing anthropogenic atmospheric inorganic nitrogen (N) and soluble iron (Fe) deposition over the industrial era. Elevated N deposition results from fossil fuel combustion and agriculture, and elevated soluble Fe deposition results from increased atmospheric processing in the presence of anthropogenic pollutants and soluble Fe from combustion sources. Simulations with… CONTINUE READING
