Summary
Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2297: Iron content of Southern Ocean phytoplankton: implications for carbon transfer to the deep sea.

Data on size-fractionated distribution of suspended trace elements (including iron) in marine particles taken from the surface Southern Ocean south of Australia. Data for 4 size-fractions at 4 stations along ~142 degrees E are included.

Explanation of codes used in the dataset:

The isotope of the element of interest is listed down column A. LR refers to low resolution and MR medium resolution (that is the resolution of the ICPMS analytical instrument). So Mn55(LR) is the manganese isotope 55 ran in low resolution.

SFP1_2um_B2_1:
SFP=size-fractionated particles
1=station 1
2um=2micron filter size
B2=blank 2
1=replicate 1

RSD%=relative standard deviation in %

Blank=field blank
Blk/sample%=blank-to-sample ratio in %

CRMs_261102=certified reference materials (ran on 26 Nov 2002)
Scaled up=previous column times multiplication factor (a serial dilution was used)
Blk=blank subtracted
certified=the value certified by the manufacturer of the reference material
SLRS_1in25_1= the CRM 'SLRS', ran with a 1 in 25 dilution factor, replicate 1

DigBlk1_1=digestion blank 1, replicate 1
