We are excited to announce that the 3rd International GEOTRACES Summer School: Introducing Polar Parameters, which had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will take place from 10th to 17th July 2022.

Science Highlights

Anthropogenic aerosol has become a dominant source of zinc in the deep water of the Northern South China Sea

Liao and colleagues determined zinc concentrations and isotope compositions in sinking particles collected in the Northern South China Sea…

An updated global ocean chromium biogeochemical cycle

Janssen and co-authors present an exhaustive compilation of ocean chromium data…

Mercury stable isotopes constrain atmospheric pathways to the ocean

The study’s results hold promise that the implementation of anti-pollution measures under the Minamata Convention will likely result in a faster decrease of oceanic mercury levels than previously thought.
