Below you can find a list of science highlights of main GEOTRACES discoveries on zinc research:
Trace metal fluxes of cadmium, copper, lead and zinc from the Congo River into the South Atlantic Ocean are supplemented by atmospheric inputs
Liu and colleagues show that rainfall augments some fluxes of trace metals from the Congo River.
The North Pacific Ocean, a key actor for the zinc oceanic cycle
Sieber and his colleagues lift the veil on some of the mechanisms that control the behavior of zinc in the Pacific Ocean, and more globally.
Anthropogenic aerosol has become a dominant source of zinc in the deep water of the Northern South China Sea
Liao and colleagues determined zinc concentrations and isotope compositions in sinking particles collected in the Northern South China Sea…
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…
Surprising conservativity of trace metals along a costal embayment salinity gradient
Chen and co-workers analyzed an array of trace metals together with Rare Earth Elements in a salinity gradient in the Jinhae Bay, the largest semi-enclosed bay in South Korea…
Pros and cons of nine bioactive trace elements as tracers of modern and paleo-productivity
Horner and co-authors assess whether nine bioactive trace metals and their isotopes can be used as paleo-productivity proxies.
