Chan et co-authors provide a comprehensive view of trace metal distribution in the subarctic Pacific Ocean.
Benaltabet and his colleagues propose a study of the dissolved aluminium and silicate fate in the Gulf of Aqaba (Red Sea).
Zheng and co-authors present the full-depth distributions of aluminum, lead, manganese and copper in the western South Pacific.
Full vertical water column profiles were established by Singh and Singh along the GI05 transect in the Indian Ocean during the fall inter-monsoon period in 2015.
Xu and Weber developed a data-assimilation model of the aluminum oceanic cycle.
This study challenges the paradigm that dissolved aluminium in the bottom waters of the Arctic basins could result from a top-down process.
Roy-Barman and co-authors established the dissolution rates from Saharan dust reaching Mediterranean seawater.
The results evidence that the effect of advection cannot be neglected in areas where a conjunction of significant horizontal dissolved aluminium gradients and significant horizontal currents is found.
Did you know that each of these tracers could follow its own marine story, quite decoupled from the others?
Twining and co-workers (2015, see reference below) provide the first direct measurements of metal quotas in phytoplankton from across the North Atlantic Ocean (US GEOTRACES GA03), known to be subjected […]
In the Eastern China Sea (ECS), the continental shelf serves as an important source of dissolved aluminium (DAl) for the overlaying waters via resuspension of sediments and benthic fluxes. This […]
Thanks to the most impressive set of dissolved aluminium (Al) and silicon (Si) data ever published in the Atlantic Ocean, Middag and co-workers (2015, see reference below) are thoroughly scanning […]
Three trace elements distributions (iron, manganese and aluminium) help to constrain the sources of chemical elements in the North Atlantic Ocean. Atmospheric, Mediterranean Sea and margin inputs are confirmed while […]
Taking into account most of the parameters that govern any trace element’s oceanic behaviour is a challenge, given their number and complexity. Marco van Hulten and co-workers (2014, see reference […]
Results from the first US-GEOTRACES cruise in the North Atlantic are coming out! Andrew Wozniak and co-authors show that aerosols from European-influenced air masses (combustion influenced) have higher relative iron (Fe) […]
