Dissolved copper isotope biogeochemistry in the Tasman Sea, SW Pacific Ocean

Thompson, Claire; Ellwood, Michael

Description

Described as a 'Goldilocks element' in seawater, the free copper ion (Cu2+) concentration in open ocean waters is generally low enough to avoid causing toxicity to marine algae and bacteria, but high enough to be utilised in a range of bio-essential metallo-proteins and enzymes. The measurement of stable copper (Cu) isotopic compositions in seawater is proposed as a means to better understand the biogeochemical cycling of this important micronutrient in marine systems. Processes including...[Show more]
