- Southern Ocean Iron Enrichment Experiment,
- The availability of iron is known to exert a controlling influence on biological productivity in surface waters over large areas of the ocean and may have been an important factor in the variation of the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide over glacial cycles. The effect of iron in the Southern Ocean is particularly important because of its large area and abundant nitrate, yet iron-enhanced growth of phytoplankton may be differentially expressed between waters with high silicic acid in the south and low silicic acid in the north, where diatom growth may be limited by both silicic acid and iron. Two mesoscale experiments, designed to investigate the effects of iron enrichment in regions with high and low concentrations of silicic acid, were performed in the Southern Ocean. These experiments demonstrate iron's pivotal role in controlling carbon uptake and regulating atmospheric partial pressure of carbon dioxide., Cited By (since 1996):316, Oceanography, CODEN: SCIEA, ,

- A rosette system for the collection of trace metal clean seawater,
- We designed a large-volume rosette sampler for collecting seawater with minimal trace metal contamination. The system uses eight modified 30-liter Go-Flo bottles secured to a Nylon II-coated stainless steel frame. The instrument is deployed with a dedicated winch with polyurethane-coated, three-conductor Kevlar hydroline. A prototype was used as part of the U.S. JGOFS Equatorial Pacific sampling program during spring and fall 1992. A redesigned model was used during the 1993 IronEx experiments and is currently being deployed in the Arabian Sea. The results of trace metal analyses collected on these cruises indicate that samples recovered are comparable to current single Go-Flo casts., Cited By (since 1996):28, CODEN: LIOCA, , , Oceanography, Downloaded from: www.aslo.org/lo/toc/vol_41/issue_6/1367.pdf (23 June 2014).
