Session 2. BIO Topic Session
Understanding the role of iron in regulating biogeochemical cycles and ecosystem structures in the North Pacific Ocean
Co-sponsored by SOLAS

Co-Convenors: Angelica Peña (Canada), Toshi Saino (Japan) and Mark Wells (U.S.A.)

Iron plays a key role in regulating the biogeochemical cycles of carbon and nitrogen, and pelagic ecosystem structures in the North Pacific Ocean, yet our understanding of these effects remains limited. External sources of iron, such as Asian dust, rivers, sediments, and volcanoes, supply large amounts of iron to the North Pacific, while the physical processes of upwelling, meso-scale eddies, boundary currents, and tidal mixing transport deep waters with high iron concentration to the upper ocean. Biological uptake, zooplankton grazing, re-mineralization, and iron chemistry change the forms of iron and its distribution in the North Pacific Ocean. This session invites papers that address physical, biological and chemical processes controlling iron distribution and transformation, linkages between iron and ecosystem responses, and impacts on carbon and nitrogen cycles. Of special interest are papers that combine recent progress from field observations and modeling studies that relate iron cycling to ecosystem structures and carbon fluxes in the North Pacific Ocean.
