 The Report of the Workshop is available to download.


Since the inception of the international GEOTRACES Programme, a strong interest has developed in carrying out GEOTRACES-related activities in the Mediterranean Sea, due to the proximity and importance of the ocean-land-atmosphere domains, as well as the variety and intensity of exchanges between these domains. This interest has already led to several discussions and deliberations (See background on the GEOTRACES in the Mediterranean Web page for more information). The GEOTRACES Mediterranean Planning Workshop aims to focus these discussions and to lead to an action plan for future GEOTRACES activities in the Mediterranean.

 Organizing Committee

The Organizing Committee of the workshop is composed by Angelos Hannides, Laurent Coppola, Cécile Guieu, Catherine Jeandel, and Pere Masqué.

 Agenda and Presentations
