Below you can find a list of science highlights of main GEOTRACES discoveries on nickel research:
Shelf sediments in the Benguela Upwelling System as a major source of trace metals to the shelf and eastern South Atlantic Ocean
Liu and her colleagues investigated dissolved trace metals distributions within the Benguela Upwelling System sampled from GEOTRACES GA08 cruise.
Debate on the dissolved nickel bioavailibility in surface waters
John and co-authors tackle one of the known paradoxes regarding trace metal cycles in the ocean…
Nickel bioactive role in the oceans assessed by its isotopes
Lemaitre and her colleagues realized the simultaneous analysis of the dissolved nickel isotopes and concentrations in the North Atlantic.
Contrasting distributions of dissolved manganese, nickel, cadmium and zinc in the Mediterranean Sea
Extensive trace metal clean sampling during the Dutch GEOTRACES cruise in the Mediterranean Sea allowed Middag and his colleagues to establish the basin scale distribution of these trace metals.
Icebergs as sources of trace metals to the ocean: which impact?
Earth’s Ice Sheets are known to release significant quantities of lithogenic particles into the ocean every year, but how does this material affect trace metal availability in the ocean?
Scavenging differentiates the distribution of cadmium, nickel, zinc and copper in the North Pacific Ocean
Zheng and co-authors observed sectional distributions of cadmium, nickel, zinc, and copper in the North Pacific Ocean during three GEOTRACES related cruises…
