"I am really excited about these articles from our North Pacific GEOTRACES work, which was the first NSF funding I received after arriving at CMS. Our studies target the cycling of trace metals in the region of oldest ocean waters, and answer questions I have been puzzling over for years - some of which have been around since before I was born! We knock down the idea that oxygen minimum zones are places where metals precipitate, and we show that particle-scavenging is needed to complete our understanding of the global zinc cycle." –Tim Conway, Associate Professor.
Trace metals in the North Pacific
Our blue planet faces a suite of challenges and opportunities for understanding and innovation. Our mission is to advance understanding of the interconnectivity of ocean systems and human-ocean interactions using a cross-disciplinary approach, to empower the next workforce of the blue economy with a world-class education experience, and to share our passion for a healthy environment and science-informed decision-making with community audiences near and far.
