Café Thorium has archived the remains of what was once the
largest collection of large volume(50 liter) open ocean water
samples in the world. These were collected mostly between
1950 and 1980 with Bodman samplers or the ship’s clean seawater
intake. Most have been disposed of due to lack of storage
space and these last 850 cannot be stored indefinitely. If
you have an interest in analyzing any of these please contact
Ken Buesseler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
They can be yours for the cost of shipping and an acknowledgement
in any published results.
