Deployment of the NIOZ-built water sampling system from R/V Pelagia during GEOTRACES cruise 64PE373 in the Mediterranean Sea. The system has 24 × 24 L PVDF pristine samplers mounted on an all-titanium ultraclean CTD frame using a metal-free Kevlar hydrowi

 A special issue of the Oceanography magazine covering the changing ocean chemistry has been recently published online. The special issue features over 20 articles selected and prepared for publishing by two guest editors: John W. Farrington from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Flip Froelich from the Froelich Education Service. The issue was produced with the support of the US National Science Foundation. The printed version will be available as of March 2014.
