Abstract Iron [dissolved Fe (D-Fe) and total dissolvable Fe (T-Fe)] and nutrient concentrations in the surface water of the Oyashio region (northwestern North Pacific) were measured before and during spring phytoplankton bloom (March to May in 2007). During the pre-bloom period (middle of March), we observed vertically uniform concentrations of iron (0.3–0.5 nM [D-Fe] and 3–5 nM [T-Fe]), macronutrients (10–15 μM NO 3 +NO 2 , 1.0–1.5 μM PO 4 and 20–30 μM Si(OH) 4 ) and chlorophyll a (Chl- a , 0… CONTINUE READING
