GEOTRACES is an international program which aims to improve the understanding of biogeochemical cycles and large-scale distribution of trace elements and their isotopes in the marine environment, including the Northwestern Pacific Ocean (NWPO). However, regional distributions of trace elements and their isotopes (TEI) in seawaters in the NWPO are largely unknown. In this workshop, the GEOTRACES associated oceanographers in East Asia will be invited to evaluate a full picture of the current status of the studies in the oceanic region, and then to identify important scientific questions and directions for future regional collaborative studies. We would like to encourage early-career scientists and graduate students to attend this meeting to promote long-term academic exchange in TEI oceanography research in East Asia.
