Bioavailable iron is released from anoxic sediments, such as those that underlie the Peruvian upwelling zone. Analyses of iron levels in sediments from this region suggest that iron release occurs in a relatively narrow range of redox conditions, and that the amount of iron released to the upwelling waters has varied over the past 140,000 years.
