Short summary
Atmospheric deposition is known to be a major source of nutrients for the marine biosphere in the Mediterranean Sea. The study of the origin of nutrients and trace metals in Corsica presented here shows that the dust events were the major sources of Si and Fe. Conversely, combustion sources predominated the inputs of N, P, and trace metals. This work showed the importance of considering background anthropogenic deposition for estimating the impact of atmospheric forcing on marine biota.
