Abstract
    Marine sediments deposited beneath the eastern Pacific upwelling margin are a substantial sink for silica. The geochemistry of these sediments suggests that periods of intense upwelling result in iron limitation, which enhances the export of silica from the surface to the deep ocean and sediments.
