REDOX processes influence the geochemistry of many elements in the ocean, but attributing the distribution of these elements in the water column and sediments to specific redox processes is difficult because they are also influenced by non-redox processes and by other inputs that are poorly constrained. Cerium provides an opportunity to study redox processes in the ocean1–5 because its redox chemistry leads to its enrichment or depletion ('cerium anomalies') with respect to its lanthanide… CONTINUE READING
