Abstract

Surface transects and vertical profiles of macronutrients, dissolved iron (D-Fe), and dissolved manganese (D-Mn) were investigated during August 2003 in the southeastern Bering Sea. We observed iron-limited, HNLC surface waters in the deep basin of the Bering Sea (15–20 μmol/kg nitrate, ∼0.07 nmol/kg D-Fe, and ⩽1.0 nmol/kg D-Mn); nitrate-limited, iron-replete surface waters over the shelf (
