Abstract

GEOTRACES is an international program that involves scientists from 35 nations and that has as its primary goal an improved understanding of biogeochemical cycles and the large-scale distribution of trace elements and their isotopes (TEIs) in the ocean (www.geotraces. org) (Lam and Anderson 2018 this issue). Trace elements are critical for marine life and influence the functioning of ocean ecosystems and the global carbon cycle (Lohan and Tagliabue 2018 this issue); other trace elements are of concern as contaminants or toxins (Hatje et al. 2018 this issue). Thus, understanding the role of trace elements in the marine environment has become a top geoscience priority.
