GEOTRACES is an international programme which aims to improve the understanding of biogeochemical cycles and large-scale distribution of trace elements and their isotopes in the marine environment. Scientists from approximately 30 nations have been involved in the programme, which is designed to study all major ocean basins over the next decade.

Challenges and Benefits
Many trace elements serve as regulators of biological processes in the ocean, influencing marine ecosystem dynamics and the carbon cycle. But knowledge of the marine biogeochemical cycles of these essential […]
Many trace elements are critical for marine life and therefore influence the functioning of ocean ecosystems and the global carbon cycle. Some trace elements are also of concern as contaminants, […]
