More ICY-LAB papers to follow!

And some interesting review papers (featuring ICY-LAB team members) all about silicon and silicifiers:

Competition between silicifiers and non-silicifiers in the past and present ocean and its evolutionary impacts

A review of the stable isotope bio-geochemistry of the global silicon cycle and its associated trace elements

Biosilicification drives a decline of dissolved Si in the oceans through geologic time


And a recent paper about barium in the Arctic Ocean!

Spatiotemporal Variability of Barium in Arctic Sea‐Ice and Seawater
