Tracers of physical and biogeochemical processes, past changes and ongoing anthropogenic impacts: the 43rd International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics, Liege, Belgium, May 2-6, 2011

Grégoire, Marilaure; Anderson, Robert F.; Delille, Bruno; Jeandel, Catherine; Speich, Sabrina

The 43rd International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics ( gathered a hundred scientists from around the world to discuss new developments and insights related to tracers and proxies (from temperature and salinity to gases and isotopes) with a particular attention on the use of Trace Elements and Isotopes (TEI) as tracers. The colloquium was organized in connection with the Geotraces program (an ongoing international study of the global marine biogeochemical cycles of trace elements and their isotopes, and was the occasion to present the wealth of data collected during large oceanographic expeditions that occurred in connection with the International Polar year. In this framework, particular emphasis was given to the BONUS-GoodHope project, a multi-disciplinary oceanographic cruise that coupled full-depth ocean and atmosphere physical and biogeochemical observations, including trace metals and isotopes (Speich et al. 2013; Speich et al. 2008). The special issue presents a collection of papers dealing with these different thematics.
