Iron(II) measurements on water column samples collected on the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2012
Entry ID: SIPEX_II_Iron

Abstract: Water samples for dissolved trace metal measurements were collected from the surface (15m) down to the 1000m using an autonomous intelligent rosette system (General Ocanics, USA) specially adapted for trace metal work and deployed on a Dyneema rope. The rosette was equipped with 12x10-L Niskin-1010X bottles specially modified for trace metal water sampling. This system has been successfully ... View entire text

Quality Sub-optimal calibration curves earlier in the cruise (and low sensitivity of the luminol), but things improved over the course of the voyage. Luminol has been previously found to 'age well', so that might account for the improved sensitivity, but there is no apparent reason for the improved calibration curves. Maybe the trace metal container is becoming cleaner with time.
