Biotic and abiotic retention, recycling and remineralization of metals in the ocean

Boyd, Phillip; Ellwood, Michael; Tagliabue, Alessandro; Twining, B.S.


Trace metals shape both the biogeochemical functioning and biological structure of oceanic provinces. Trace metal biogeochemistry has primarily focused on modes of external supply of metals from aeolian, hydrothermal, sedimentary and other sources. However, metals also undergo internal transformations such as abiotic and biotic retention, recycling and remineralization. The role of these internal transformations in metal biogeochemical cycling is now coming into focus. First, the retention of...[Show more]
