Marine Chemistry

Marine Chemistry is the investigation of the chemical composition and processes of the world's oceans. Some of the key procedures studied are the cycling of inorganic and natural carbon; supplements, for example, nitrogen and phosphorus; and trace elements, such as iron. This makes marine chemistry an interdisciplinary field. For instance, study chemical signalling among marine organisms, deterioration in the ocean of cultural heritage, the maritime carbon cycle, ocean acidification and benthic nutrient fluxes.
