GEOTRACES Marine Particles Special Issue Published!

The Special issue in Progress in Oceanography dedicated to the marine particles is published now!

This special issue arose from the 3rd GEOTRACES Data-Model Workshop held on 14-18 November 2011 at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain).
