Below you can find a list of science highlights of main GEOTRACES discoveries on cadmium research:
Disentangling what controls the cadmium distribution in the Pacific Ocean
Sieber and his colleagues established the distribution of dissolved cadmium concentrations and isotopes in a section extending from Alaska to Tahiti.
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.
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.
Unique winter dataset of particulate and dissolved cadmium in the Indian sector of the Southern Ocean
Cloete and collaborators analysed particulate and dissolved cadmium at 7 stations in austral winter along a North South section off South Africa.
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…
Controls of cadmium-phosphate systematic unraveled by Neural Networks and Ocean Circulation Inverse Model
Roshan and DeVries explore the similarities and contrasts between oceanic cadmium and phosphate cycles using an Artificial Neural Network mapping technique and Ocean Circulation Inverse Model.
