Fig. 16. (a) Changes in concentrations of size-fractionated chlorophyll a in control and experimental bottles enriched with various amounts of iron, measured at the beginning of the experiment (initial) and after 4 and 6 days of incubation. (b) Relationships between initial dissolved iron concentration and specific growth rates of phytoplankton assemblage, calculated using size-fractionated chlorophyll a data. The onboard incubation was conducted during the SEEDS-II experiment using iron-fertilized surface water on Day 17.
