#EESPublishes: EES student Yi Tang & Prof Stewart on Particle Characteristics in the N. Atlantic

EES Student Yi Tang and Professor Gillian Stewart published a paper in Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Research Papers entitled The influence of particle concentration and composition on the fractionation of 210Po and 210Pb along the North Atlantic GEOTRACES transect GA03.

Congratulations Yi! Article highlights include:

  • Provide links between particle features and 210Po and 210Pb activities in N. Atl.
  • Particle characteristics, relationships with isotopes varied geographically.
  • Particle characteristics, relationships with isotopes varied with particle size.
  • Particle composition, especially litho and opal, could predict sorption of 210Pb.
  • Sorption of 210Po is more complicated, but consistently related to POC content.
