Cruise and Methods Manual (CookBook)

Please click here to download the Sampling and Sample-handling Protocols for GEOTRACES Cruises (version 3.0, 2017).

The previous versions of the cookbook is also available to download: version 1.0 (2010), version 2.0 (2014)

The main differences between the version 2.0 and 1.0 are: 

  • the General Considerations section that outlines steps required for TEI data to be intercalibrated has been substantially rewritten;
  • the Hydrography and Ancillary Parameters section (and Appendix 2) have been simplified by citing and using the GO-SHIP protocols for most hydrographic measurements;  
  • the Radionuclide section now has procedures for artificial radionuclides that was inadvertently omitted in Version 1; and
  • in general, all sections have been reviewed and edited as needed based on experiences with 4 years of actual cruises.
