RIP CURRENT – NEWS IN OCEANOGRAPHY • GEOTRACES—A Global Study of the Marine Biogeochemical Cycles of Trace Elements and Their Isotopes

Robert F. Anderson Gideon M. Henderson
First Paragraph

Since the late 1990s there has been a growing impetus for a comprehensive global study of the marine biogeochemical cycles of trace elements and their isotopes (TEIs). This has led to the development of a research program known as GEOTRACES.
