Science Highlights

What are the drivers of the distributions of cadmium, nickel, zinc, copper and cobalt, manganese and aluminium in the Atlantic Ocean? Two papers are tackling this issue

Chen and co-authors reveal that the distributions of dissolved tracers at depth in the South Atlantic are predominantly controlled by the mixing of North Atlantic Deep Water and waters of Antarctic origin…

Science Highlights

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.

Science Highlights

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.

Science Highlights

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…

Science Highlights

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…

Science Highlights

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…
