    Chemical Oceanography GEOMAR, Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and Christian-Albrechts University Kiel, Germany.


Experimental work in laboratories and at sea provides important detail on biogeochemical processes and (micro)-nutrient limitation of ocean productivity. Whilst forcing variables can be carefully manipulated in bottle and mesocosm experiments, artefacts may occur due to exclusion of parts of plankton communities, contamination and/or ´bottle´ effects. Biogeochemical process observations across biogeochemical gradients as part of section cruises form an elegant alternative. In this talk, I will present examples of how cruises linked to the SOLAS and GEOTRACES programmes are providing excellent platforms for observations of changes in biogeochemical processes as a consequence of strong geochemical gradients. I will present geochemical gradients related to volcanic, dust, glacier and river inputs and their impacts on ocean biology. I will explore variations in nitrogen fixation, (micro)-nutrient limitation of microbial communities, and iron cycling related to changes in supply of (micro)-nutrients and oxygen.
The improved process understanding and quantification can be used for projections of biogeochemical processes in a future ocean.
