PurposeResearch
ObjectivesFeCycle II comprised three interlinked components

a) A comprehensive study of coupled C and Fe bloom biogeochemistry during the evolution, termination and decline of the annual spring bloom E of the N Island of New Zealand.
b) A detailed investigation of the fate of the bloom - particle dynamics & export during the bloom phases of evolution, termination and decline.
c) Examination of specific processes occurring during the bloom decline - production of biogenic gases, particle remineralisation and microbial processes.
