This dataset presents concentrations of nutrients (µmol/L): nitrous oxide (NOx), nitrate, nitrite, ammonium (NH4), phosphate (PO4) and silicic acid (Si), measured in samples of seawater during the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE). Samples were collected from CTD and trace metal rosette (TMR) deployments, as well as from the underway water supply on board, then analysed by flow injection following certified standards. This data was collected to support physical, chemical and biological oceanography studies in the Southern Ocean, conducted as part of ACE during the austral summer of 2016/2017.
Hydrolysable carbohydrate (referred to as TPZT from the analytical methodology used) is part of the labile pool of dissolved organic carbon that is excreted by most (micro)organisms or released by continental margins/sediments. It is a carbon source for heterotrophic bacteria. These carbohydrates could also potentially bind iron and act as an iron binding ligand. This data is used to explore the nature of iron ligands and relate to biological and chemical oceanography.
Fe chemical speciation of filtered seawater data are presented in this dataset, resulting from samples collected from a trace metal rosette on board the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE). During the austral summer of 2016/2017, seawater samples were collected from the Atlantic and Indian Ocean sectors of the Southern Ocean and dissolved Fe concentration, iron-binding organic ligands concentration and the conditional stability constant of Fe’ are presented here.
