Scientists involved in the SWINGS-GS02 cruise meet for 3 days in Auxerre (France, May 10th-12th, 2022) for a post-cruise meeting to discuss data results and main scientific discoveries. SWINGS is a major French contribution to the international GEOTRACES programme. SWINGS involves 80 scientists and 19 international laboratories from 6 countries. The GS02 cruise started from La Réunion Island (France) on January 13th, 2021 and ended at the same place on March 8th, 2021. During 52 days, many stations were sampled with various pieces of equipment on board the Marion Dufresne II research vessel in order to elucidate trace element sources, transformations and sinks in key areas of the Indian sector of the Southern Ocean contributing to the global effort of the GEOTRACES programme.
