Manganese, Iodine and Sulfide Concentrations and Peroxide to Oxygen Ratio Measured during the U.S. JGOFS Arabian Sea Process StudyEntry ID: USJGOFS_ARAB_MN_I_SO4
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.
Manganese (Mn), iodide (I-), total iodine, and sulfide (SO4--)
concentrations were measured from water samples collected by the CTD
rosette bottle sampler at various depths on cruise TTN-045.
Hydrogen peroxide to oxygen ratio was measured by voltammetry where
iodide and/or nitrite concentration was high.
