Research Interests Dr. Melanie Behrens


The focus of my research lies on rare earth element concentrations and neodymium isotopes in the tropical Pacific along R/V L’Atalante cruise track CASSIOPEE. The DFG project is aimed at testing the potentially crucial role of the tropical Pacific zonal current system in providing trace elements from the West Pacific source area to the iron-limited East Pacific, with a particular focus on recently discovered mid-depth jets.
