Iron analysis in bottle profiles off Mauritania, supplement to: Schlosser, Christian; Croot, Peter L (2009): Controls on seawater Fe(III) solubility in the Mauritanian upwelling zone. Geophysical Research Letters, 36, 1-5

Christian Schlosser & Peter L Croot
Iron solubility measurements in the Mauritanian upwelling and the adjacent Open Ocean of the Tropical Atlantic show for all stations lower values in the surface mixed layer than at depth below the pycnocline. We attribute this distribution to a combination of loss terms, chiefly photo-oxidation of organic ligands in the surface, and supply terms, predominantly from the release of ligands from the decomposition of organic matter. Significant correlations with pH, oxygen and phosphate for all...
