Comments See Tréguer P et al., 1995 PMID 17746543 p.376 right column 3rd paragraph: "Thus, with an ocean surface area of 360×10^12 m^2 [investigators] can expect a flux on the order of 1.4 to 2.8 mmol of Si per square meter of water per year as typical of the silicic acid eolian flux in the ocean."
