“East Asia GEOTRACES Workshop” a successful workshop in Japan

East Asia GEOTRACES Workshop: Trace Element and Isotope (TEI) study in the Northwestern Pacific and its marginal seas

The East Asia GEOTRACES Workshop was held on 16-18 January 2017 in Sapporo, Japan to evaluate the current status of trace elements and their isotopes (TEI) studies in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean and its marginal seas, and to identify important scientific questions and directions for future regional collaborative studies. For three days a total of 56 registered scientists from China, Germany, Korea, Russia, Taiwan, United States and Japan, took part in the workshop. The workshop consisted of 5 plenary talks, 17 keynote talks and 25 short topics talks related to GEOTRACES & BioGEOTRACES. Early-career researchers were especially encouraged to give a talk, which was very successful. During the workshop we discussed regional scientific results, future cruise plans and possible collaborations. It was agreed that we will continue the discussions and have the next workshop around 2018 in Xiamen, China.
