Paper released: Effect of dissolved organic matter on copper bioavailability to a coastal dinoflagellate at environmentally relevant concentrations.

This article, published in open access in The Science of the Total Environment (, applies the use of stable Cu isotopes and demonstrates that Cu internalization depends on labile Cu at relatively high Cu concentrations (greater than 30 nM), while at lower concentrations, Cu organic complexes are partially bioavailable

First sampling cruise

Despite the fact that the project officially started nine months ago, different circumstances, including the global pandemic, have meant that the first sampling has not been possible until now. The week of March 22-26, Paula Sánchez and Juan Santos were carrying out the first campaign of the project where they
