Brief description This project promotes cross-disciplinary scientific collaborations at national and international levels to understand the role iron plays in regulating oceanic biodiversity, primary production and ability to mitigate climate change. This project will thus benefit to human society as a whole. New promising technologies will be developed to assess iron oceanic limitation, therefore fostering the international competitiveness of Australian research. This project will contribute to National Research Priority: Sustainable use of Australia's biodiversity. In addition, the proposed research is a vital element of global effort to advance our understanding of iron-related oceanic processes, as manifest in several international scientific programs.
