Wet deposition in the remote western and central Mediterranean as a source of trace metals to surface seawater

Karine Desboeufs et al.

Data sets

Biogeochemical dataset collected during the PEACETIME cruise Guieu et al.

Short summary
This article reports the first concurrent sampling of wet deposition samples and surface seawater and was performed during the PEACETIME cruise in the remote Mediterranean (May–June 2017). Through the chemical composition of trace metals (TMs) in these samples, it emphasizes the decrease of atmospheric metal pollution in this area during the last few decades and the critical role of wet deposition as source of TMs for Mediterranean surface seawater, especially for intense dust deposition events.
