COST-GEOTRACES Voltammetry Workshop

6 October 2012 - 9 October 2012

COST-GEOTRACES Voltammetry Workshop
Dates: 6-9 October 2012
Location: Šibenik, Croatia

The Report of the Workshop is available to download.


Voltammetric techniques have played an important and vital role in the development and maturation of chemical oceanography as a scientific field. International programs in the past, from GEOSECS to JGOFS, have helped expand the range of marine chemical applications for which voltammetry is applied and have led to a better understanding of the distribution, speciation and biogeochemical cycling of the elements in the ocean. Now in the midst of the international GEOTRACES program it is a perfect opportunity to both look back at the achievements of voltammetric methods and to see into where future applications can contribute.

The workshop will be held in Šibenik, Croatia, in the frame of research activities at the Marine station Martinska, Ruđer Bošković Institute, from October 6th to October 9th 2012.


Workshop topics:

1) The application and usage of Voltammetry within GEOTRACES: Past, present and future.

2) Utilizing the ongoing lessons of GEOTRACES for developing intercalibration studies for voltammetric measurements in seawater.

3) Development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for data treatment and speciation calculations using voltammetry; including sampling and storage of samples; experimental design for speciation/complexation studies.

4) Application of new types of sensors (e.g. solid electrodes, micro electrodes) to work in GEOTRACES.

5) Tips and tricks in voltammetry – a networking approach: Sharing experiences and ideas on voltammetry through GEOTRACES activities.
