Dissolved Iron and Aluminum Concentrations Measured during the U.S. JGOFS Arabian Sea Process StudyEntry ID: USJGOFS_ARAB_FE_AL_CONC
Abstract: A component of U.S. Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) is the
Arabian Sea Process Study. Eleven cruises took place aboard the R/V
Thomas G. Thompson for about sixteen months from October 1994 until
January 1996. These cruises provided seasonal coverage of the annual
monsoon and inter-monsoon cycles in the area southeast of Oman - from
... where the cruises were staged. The monsoons of the Arabian Sea drive
a uniquely intense carbon cycling system, and it is the goal of JGOFS
to better understand the role of the oceans in global carbon cycling.
Water samples were collected by CTD rosette bottles and by Trace
Metal-free Go-Flo bottles. Depth profiles of iron (Fe) and aluminum
(Al) concentrations are available for five of the eleven cruises.
Concentrations are in nanomoles/liter.
