*OS01: Trace elements and their isotopes in the ocean: GEOTRACES activities in Asia and Oceania
Main Convener: Dr. Yoshiki Sohrin (Kyoto University, Japan)
Oceanic trace elements and their isotopes (TEIs) are promising tracers and proxies for important geochemical and biogeochemical processes in the modern and ancient oceans. The global distributions of TEIs have been extensively studied during the past decade, mostly attributed to the sponsorship and support of an active international program, GEOTRACES. Some of the TEIs data obtained at crossover stations by different research groups globally have already been intercalibrated and validated by GEOTRACES committee and the validated data will be reported in the Intermediate Data Product in early 2014. The contributions of Asian and Oceania countries to GEOTRACES related studies would be essential for the success of GEOTRACES programme. This session aims to bring together GEOTRACES related studies in Asia and Oceania to enhance and promote the related research in the region. Contributions from other regions are also welcome.
