Resumo:  The dissolved Mn distribution on an oceanographic section along 50-degrees-W in the western North Atlantic shows decreasing concentrations in the offshore direction in the surface layer and with depth at the deep water stations. Leachable particulate Mn concentrations are low in the open ocean surface waters and elevated at intermediate depths. Dissolved Al concentrations in the surface layer are higher in the open ocean than on the shelf and the vertical distributions are characterized by surface maxima, a subsurface minimum at almost-equal-to 1 000 m and increasing concentrations in the deep waters. Leachable particulate Al concentrations are elevated on the shelf and in open ocean surface waters compared to the intermediate and deep waters. The Deep Western Boundary Current has high levels of dissolved Al and leachable particulate Mn and Al, and low levels of dissolved Mn. The distribution of dissolved Al is controlled primarily by inputs from atmospheric dust and removal onto biogenic particles. Both fluvial and atmospheric inputs affect dissolved Mn levels with removal occurring primarily by oxidation of Mn2+. The Al distribution is characterized by short residence times in shelf and surface waters and relatively constant distribution coefficients. The Mn distribution is characterized by longer surface water residence times, shorter deep water residence times, and more widely varying distribution coefficients than Al. Removal of Al by a surface adsorption mechanism and Mn by slower oxidation of Mn2+ are consistent with these observations. A model of Mn oxidation kinetics accurately predicts the intermediate depth leachable particulate Mn maximum.
