Twenty Years of GEOTRACES: An International Study of the Marine Biogeochemical Cycles of Trace Elements and Isotopes | Volume 37 | Number 2 | June 2024

Including a contribution from the BioGeoSCAPES community: "The dawn of the BioGeoSCAPES program: Ocean metabolism and nutrient cycles on a changing planet."

Water from this cast yielded data for key biogeochemical parameters such as iron, aluminum, radium, metal isotopes, and major nutrients. Photo credit: Katlin Bowman Adamczyk, US Geological Survey



Want to be a champion of BioGeoSCAPES?

Over the next four years, the BioGeoSCAPES Accelnet will host virtual and in-person activities to prioritize and plan foundational components of a collaborative international BioGeoSCAPES initiative. These activities may include webinar series, topical workshops, and smaller group planning meetings.
