Extraterrestrial dust as a source of bioavailable Fe for the ocean productivity

N. G. Rudraswami
Bioavailable Fe is an essential nutrient for phytoplankton that allows these organisms to flourish and drawdown atmospheric CO2 affecting global climatic condition. In marine locales remote from the continents extraterrestrial (ET) dust provides an important source of Fe and thus moderates primary productivity. Here we provide the first constraints on the partitioning of extraterrestrial Fe between seawater and sediments from observations of the dissolution and alteration of 5228 cosmic spherules recovered from the deep sea...
