Below you can find a list of science highlights of main GEOTRACES discoveries on manganese research:
Extremely high radioactive levels in the manganese nodules
Volz and co-authors demonstrate that radioisotopes in the manganese nodules mostly exceed exempt activity levels…
A detailed study of the land-ocean input of dissolved iron, manganese and cobalt in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean
Chen and co-authors propose a detailed study of the spatial and seasonal distributions of dissolved iron, manganese and cobalt in the Northeast Atlantic continental margin.
Dissolved manganese distribution in the Arabian Sea reveals many variable triggers
Analysis of dissolved manganese on samples collected on GEOTRACES cruises allowed Singh and colleagues to establish its basin-wide distribution in the Arabian Sea.
Different fates of four poorly soluble trace elements in the Pacific Ocean
Zheng and co-authors present the full-depth distributions of aluminum, lead, manganese and copper in the western South Pacific.
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.
Distributions, boundary inputs, and scavenging processes of trace metals in the East Sea (Japan Sea)
Seo and his colleagues show pronounced atmospheric and shelf inputs of trace elements in the Japan Sea.
