Paper in press: Bringing barite formation into focus

Study led by Francisca Martínez-Ruiz published in Front. Earth Sci. showing similar patterns of barite precipitation throughout the mesopelagic ocean, suggesting a common (organo)mineralization driving process. This paper is part of a special issue entitled: The Oceanic Particle Flux and its Cycling Within the Deep Water Column.
