Please click here to download the Sampling and Sample-handling Protocols for GEOTRACES Cruises (version 3.0, 2017).
The main differences between the version 2.0 and 1.0 are:
- the General Considerations section that outlines steps required for TEI data to be intercalibrated has been substantially rewritten;
- the Hydrography and Ancillary Parameters section (and Appendix 2) have been simplified by citing and using the GO-SHIP protocols for most hydrographic measurements;
- the Radionuclide section now has procedures for artificial radionuclides that was inadvertently omitted in Version 1; and
- in general, all sections have been reviewed and edited as needed based on experiences with 4 years of actual cruises.
