Towards explaining the Nd paradox using reversible scavenging in an ocean general circulation model

Abstract:

The isotopic composition of the rare earth element neodymium (Nd) has the potential to serve as water-mass tracer, because it is naturally tagged by continental sources with distinct ages and lithologies. However, in order to understand the limitations of this approach we need to know more about the physical and biogeochemical processes controlling the distribution of Nd in the modern ocean. For example, Nd isotope ratios behave quasi-conservatively, while concentrations in the water column g...
