Abstract

The modern (pre-industrial) ocean is characterised by a concentration of dissolved sulphate of 28 mM with little variability in its horizontal or vertical distribution. This homogeneity is a consequence of the long residence time of sulphate of some 25 Ma in comparison to the present ocean mixing time of 1,000–2,000 years (e.g. Holland 1984).
