Impact of atmospheric deposition on N and P geochemistry in the southeastern Levantine basin

Abstract:

Aeolian dust was collected from 2001 to 2003, as part of a longer-term study, to estimate the nutrient input to the Levantine basin from atmospheric deposition. Adsorption experiments, using dust samples from six individual dust storms, showed insignificant adsorption of phosphate onto dry deposited Saharan dust. Thus adsorption onto dust can be discounted as a reason for the high nitrogen:phosphorus (N:P) ratio in the deep water of the eastern basin. A single dust storm sample from the Weste...
