The international GEOTRACES program has its flying start in the International Polar Year. The unique quasi-synopsis of IPY-cruises with GEOTRACES issues in the Arctic (D/NL Polarstern ; Spain-ATOS ; Japan-Geotraces; and upcoming CAN-Geotraces) and Southern Ocean (FR-Bonus Goodhope ; NL/D-Zero & Drake ; Australian-SR3 and SAZ-SENSE ; American-IS6 CLIVAR ; Japan-Geotraces ; and upcoming Spain-ATOS 2) has the potential to provide new insights into a wide range of ocean processes and dynamics in Polar Oceans. An overview of these cruises and preliminary results will be presented, keeping with the IPY-GEOTRACES cluster (IPY #35 ; H. de Baar). Moreover the intercalibration efforts during the IPY-GEOTRACES program will be introduced.
