Impact of atmospheric deposition on marine chemistry and biogeochemistry

Cécile Guieu, Céline Ridame

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter presents the current knowledge on the impact of atmospheric deposition from natural sources, such as Saharan dust, and from anthropogenic activities, on marine chemistry and biogeochemistry of the open Mediterranean Sea. Results from process studies and observations at sea that have been conducted over the past decade are summarized along with recent findings from a numerical biogeochemical model of the ocean that accounts for atmospheric deposition.
