The Legacy of in situ Iron Enrichment Experiments: Creation of a Relational, Open-Access Database
Thirteen ocean iron enrichments have been conducted over the past two decades. Working Group 131 ‘The Legacy of in situ Iron Enrichment: Data Compilation and Modeling’ (http://www.scor-int.org/Working_Groups/wg131.htm) of the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research has set out to capture and safeguard the richness of these experiments via the creation of a relational, open-access database at the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
