Science Highlights

Dust deposition rates extracted from a data-assimilation model of the aluminium oceanic cycle

Xu and Weber developed a data-assimilation model of the aluminum oceanic cycle

Intense benthic nepheloid layers in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean lead to unexpected distributions of dissolved and particulate thorium-230 and protactinium-231

Chen and colleagues explore the behaviour of thorium-230 and protactinium-231 in the benthic nepheloid layers…

Quantifying the weathered fluxes to the ocean is far from over: the overlooked role of rock coast erosion

This study reveals that cliff derived sediment supply is only three times less than the solid discharge of rivers for Europe.
