Cadmium to phosphorus ratio in euphotic zone particulates: why does it vary?

Bourne and co-workers examine the particulate cadmium to phosphorus ratio (Cd/P) variations of 3 particle fractions (<1µm, 1-51µm and >51µm) from 50 casts covering spatial and temporal scales never reached so far for these parameters. This impressive data set allows them to study the effects of an El Niño, upwelling, large-scale in situ Fe fertilization, low-oxygen conditions, […]
