THE input of high-temperature fluids to the ocean along sea-floor spreading centres plays an important part in controlling the composition of sea water1–3. Available data1–3 show that hydrothermal systems are major sources of lithium, manganese, rubidium, iron and silicon and sinks for magnesium and sulphur. Furthermore, reactive precipitates formed in vent systems or emerging plumes4–6 scavenge elements from sea water, thereby also influencing the composition of the sea water. Our work on the… 
The chemistry of iron in hydrothermal plumes
This thesis investigates the role of submarine hydrothermal vents in the global marine Fe budget. While debate continues over the sources of dissolved Fe to the global deep-ocean dissolved Fe budget,
The influence of seafloor hydrothermal activity on major and trace elements of the sediments from the South Mid-Atlantic Ridge
Sediment samples obtained from the South Mid-Atlantic Ridge were analyzed for the major and trace elements by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy and inductively coupled plasma
Hydrothermal scavenging of rare-earth elements in the ocean
SUSPENDED participate samples collected from the TAG hydrothermal vent field, at 26° N on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, contain ˜10% of the total rare-earth element content (by volume) of ambient sea
FIELD AND LABORATORY STUDIES OF METAL UPTAKE AND RELEASE BY HYDROTHERMAL PRECIPITATES
Data for suspended particles from hydrothermal plumes on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) support uptake of dissolved V and As during formation of Fe oxides and release of Cu and Cd during alteration of
