Germanium incorporation into sponge spicules: Development of a proxy for reconstructing inorganic germanium and silicon concentrations in seawater

Ellwood, Michael J; Kelly, Michelle; Maher, William; De Deckker, Patrick


Measurements of germanium (Ge) in deep-sea sponge skeletons are presented for sponges collected by dredge and for spicules isolated from a range of deep-sea sediment cores. Germanium to silicon (Si) ratios (Ge/Sisp) for sponge silica ranged between 0.075
