GEOTRACES session at AGU Fall Meeting 2021

Submit an abstract before 4 August 2021!

Virtual Special Issue “Cycles of trace elements and isotopes in the ocean – GEOTRACES and beyond” finalised

In addition to hosting the overview of the GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product 2017, this special issue includes 30 other research articles that contribute to the International GEOTRACES mission.

UPDATE on the release of the GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product 2021

GEOTRACES will release the IDP2021 in November alongside a series of science webinars!

GEOTRACES endorsed as Ocean Decade Action

It’s official! GEOTRACES has been selected by the United Nations as one of the first endorsed Ocean Decade Actions.

Science Highlights

Retreat of large marine-terminating glaciers may increase iron supply to surface waters

The findings demonstrate that glacial retreat and loss of ice-shelves may potentially result in increases in dissolved Fe supply to surface waters downstream of large marine terminating glaciers in future.

When lateral advective transport explains between 80 and 100% of the dissolved aluminium distribution

This study evidence that the effect of advection cannot be neglected in areas where a conjunction of significant horizontal dissolved aluminium gradients and significant horizontal currents is found.

Variable dissolution rates and fates of lithogenic tracers at the air-sea interface

Roy-Barman and co-authors established the dissolution rates from Saharan dust reaching Mediterranean seawater.
