Extended Data Fig. 8: Tracking the origins of aerosols with high iron content collected at an aerosol time-series sampling station in Tasmania during 15–17 January 2020.

From: Widespread phytoplankton blooms triggered by 2019–2020 Australian wildfires

Extended Data Fig. 8

a, High black carbon AOD plume passing the sampling station (cyan star). b, Five-day backward trajectories were launched every 6 h from the sampling station (cyan star) during 15–17 January 2020. Both the distribution of trajectories and the frequency of trajectories’ endpoints confirm that the majority of the aerosols came from southeastern Australia where wildfires were raging.
