A method for determining the isotopic composition of dissolved zinc in seawater by MC-ICP-MS with a 67Zn-68Zn double spike

Samanta, Moneesha; Ellwood, Michael; Mortimer, Graham


The biogeochemical cycling of dissolved zinc in seawater is dominated by biological uptake in the surface ocean and its regeneration at depth leading to a large concentration gradient between the surface and deep ocean. The advent of multi-collector inductively coupled mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) provides the marine community with a new way of probing the biogeochemical zinc cycle through changes in its isotope composition. In this paper we document the mathematical and analytical procedures...[Show more]
