Cycles of trace elements and isotopes in the ocean – GEOTRACES and beyond…

Chemical Geology

Edited by Tim M. Conway, Tristan Horner, Yves Plancherel, Aridane G. González.

This Special Issue is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Thomas M Church.

In addition to hosting the overview of the GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product 2017, this special issue includes 30 other research articles that contribute to the International GEOTRACES mission in four areas of discovery: developments in marine transition metal isotope analysis; the role of the Southern Ocean in driving global trace element cycling; advances in understanding of the utility of rare-earth elements and natural and anthropogenic radionuclides as tracers of ocean processes; and using aerosols, particles, and elemental speciation to interrogate processes driving trace element cycles. The issue is closed by an editorial review highlighting the contents of the special issue and the last ten years of the GEOTRACES program.

It includes the following 32 papers:
