Abstract: Peter Sedwick collected water column samples (6 depths, less than 350m) and measured dissolved iron in these samples, using specialised trace-metal clean techniques, at 9 stations along the SR3 transect between 47 deg S and 66 deg S. These are the first such data for this oceanographic sector during spring. The dissolved iron levels were generally very low (less than 0.2 nM nM) in the upper ... View entire text
