Below you can find a list of science highlights of main GEOTRACES discoveries on manganese research:
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.
New trace metal data in the Seas of Japan and Okhotsk
Nakaguchi and colleagues realized full-depth and section distributions of traces metals collected from the Seas of Japan and Okhotsk.
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.
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…
