Science Highlights

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.

Contrasting distributions of dissolved manganese, nickel, cadmium and zinc in the Mediterranean Sea

Extensive trace metal clean sampling during the Dutch GEOTRACES cruise in the Mediterranean Sea allowed Middag and his colleagues to establish the basin scale distribution of these trace metals.

Specific features characterize the dissolved iron distribution in the North Western Indian Ocean

Venkatesh Chinni and Sunil Kumar Singh propose dissolved iron profiles along two meridional transects realized during spring and fall seasons between the Arabian Sea and the sub-tropical western Indian Ocean…
