Short summary
Primary production in the Southern Ocean is a key contributor to mitigating global anthropogenic carbon dioxide; however, the controlling mechanisms are poorly understood. A series of experiments were performed to look at whether the rates of primary production are limited by the biogeochemically important micronutrient iron. The results demonstrate that any global climate models that do not take into account the effect of iron availability could underestimate primary production by up to 80 %.
