ResumenThis study analyzes the aerosol dry deposition events in the Balearic Islands (northwestern Mediterranean) and their effects on marine phytoplankton. Trace metals concentrations (Al, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Ti and Zn) of atmospheric dry depositions samples were measured to characterize their sources and the spatial and temporal variability of these events. Aerosol samples were collected at three stations in the Balearic Islands from July 2012 to January 2013. The results indicated that while Al, Cr, Fe, Mn and Ti have a natural origin (from African dust), Cu have a local anthropogenic origin. On the other hand, Zn and Ni present both a natural and local anthropogenic origin depending on the time. The response of coastal planktonic communities to the addition of natural and anthropogenic aerosols was analyzed through phytoplankton growth experiments conducted in May 2013 with surface nearshore water collected at Ses Salines Cape (South of Mallorca Island). The experiment demonstrates that Fe deposition events in the western Mediterranean Sea promote the growth of phytoplankton, whereas maximum and strong Cu deposition events seem to inhibit the phytoplankton growth.
