Iron in the Sargasso Sea: Implications for the processes controlling dissolved Fe distribution in the ocean

Abstract

[1] In the surface water of the winter Sargasso Sea, ‘‘dissolved’’ Fe concentrations (defined as iron that passes through a filter with an 0.4 micrometer diameter pore size) decrease with increasing latitude from 0.8 nM at 26 N to 0.2 nM at 31 N. It does not appear that this pattern can be explained solely by spatial variations of eolian Fe deposition… (More)
