Cadmium isotope fractionation in seawater: driving mechanisms and palaeoceanographic applications

Abstract:

The global marine distributions of Cd and phosphate are closely correlated, which has led to Cd being considered as a marine micronutrient. Recent developments in Cd stable isotope mass spectrometry have revealed that Cd uptake by phytoplankton causes isotopic fractionation in the open ocean and in culture. The explanation for this nutrient-like behaviour is unknown as there is only one identified biochemical function for Cd, an unusual Cd/Zn carbonic anhydrase (CdCA1). This thesis investi...
