Dr. Lannuzel ‘s research lies in the study of trace metals in the sea-ice environment. The iron and other trace elements profiles generated during her research represented the first data for the Antarctic pack ice zone. Her pioneer work highlighted the accumulation of trace element iron in sea ice and therefore the important role of Antarctic sea ice as an ocean fertilizer.
