Atmospheric Dynamic

When atmospheric dynamic controls the nutrient distributions in the ocean

Rainfall detection with satellites together with high-resolution data (~0.3°) for dissolved iron (DFe), aluminium (DAl), and inorganic phosphorus (DIP), confirm the existence of a sharp north–south biogeochemical boundary in the surface nutrient concentrations of the (sub)tropical Atlantic Ocean. Wet deposition in the region of the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) acts as the major dissolved iron […]
