The GEOTRACES Standards and Intercalibration (S&I) Committee is charged with ensuring that the data generated during GEOTRACES are as precise and accurate as possible, which includes all the steps from sampling to analysis. Thus, sampling methods for dissolved and particulate constituents must take a representative (of the water depth/water mass) and uncontaminated sample, the samples must be stored (or immediately analyzed) in a fashion that preserves the concentrations (activities) and chemical speciation, and the analyses of these samples must yield accurate data (concentration, activity, isotopic composition, and chemical speciation). To this end, experiences from the 2008-2010 GEOTRACES Intercalibration Program, actual GEOTRACES cruises from 2010-2017, and other related intercalibration efforts, helped to create the protocols in this document. However, methods continually evolve and the GEOTRACES S&I Committee will monitor these advances as validated by intercalibratio.....
