Table 3 A posteriori model estimates of TFe source apportionment for each region considered, including the Australian marine regions (CSMR, NMR, TEMR, NWMR, and SWMR), as well as regions of the SO (HIMI and SR3). Atmospheric sources considered include dust (Dust), biomass burning (BB), oil combustion (Oil), and coal combustion (Coal). Results are in percent
