GEOTRACE — Chemistry Takes Center Stage in Marine Science

by David Turner

The enormous breadth and range of applications of modern chemistry are reflected in the wide range of activities within IUPAC. As a result, individual chemists can often feel that their own (all important!) specialization is under represented in IUPAC ’s work. As a marine chemist, I am not immune to those feelings, but can at the same time point to some significant IUPAC contributions to marine science from the Analytical Chemistry Division (V) and the Chemistry and the Environment Division (VI). Much of the work of Division V on critical evaluation of stability constants and on chemical speciation modelling has been relevant to seawater systems, and in some cases specifically directed at seawater. Division VI has also contributed to marine sciences through books published in the “IUPAC Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental Systems.”
