Welcome to the UK GEOTRACES website.  This website represents UK work within the international marine chemistry programme, GEOTRACES.


UK GEOTRACES brings together scientists from all over the UK - from Plymouth to Edinburgh - to combine their expertise and collaborate on exciting seagoing missions.  State of the art research vessels have sailed in both the northern and southern hemispheres to collect samples and data for the UK GEOTRACES endeavour.
