Science Highlights Archive

Some recent GEOTRACES science findings are reported below.  
When getting older they are compiled in the Science Highlights Archive where the "Title Filter" search box will allow you to filter them by words in title (please note that only one-word search queries are allowed e.g. iron, Atlantic, etc.).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to a Joomla's malfunction when the search box leads to no results, the filter remains active and you are not allowed to go back to the original list of science highlights. To fix this, please clean the cache of your browser and you will get the original list restored. Sorry for the inconvenience.
