Describes the Southern Ocean Iron Release Experiment (SOIREE) conducted in 1999. Explains the iron (Fe) hypothesis: dissolved Fe limits phytoplankton growth and biomass in a large proportion of nutrient-rich ocean; Fe concentrations may be linked to atmospheric CO2 levels and global warming/cooling. Reviews prior experiments and explains SOIREE protocol and experimental procedures, presents measurements/results ... Full description.
