Abstract:

Our goal is to understand the magnitude and origin of iron inputs to coastal upwelling systems. We are specifically interested in whether and when iron input can be decoupled from macro-nutrient inputs, and the impact this has on biological productivity. Our objective is to map the distribution of high macro-nutrientlow micro-nutrient water masses off the coast of Oregon and to understand the circumstances leading to their formation. We wish to develop appropriate tools for the study of chemistry and biology in dynamic coastal upwelling regimes.
