Summary:The main purpose of this comment is to show that the coupled Ce-Nd isotope data presented by Amakawa et al. may be usefully considered within the framework of the Ce-Nd isotope systematics for sea-water which the present author describes. In their paper Amakawa et al. suggest a number of qualitative interpretations for their epsilon Ce data. The present author believes that these interpretations are over-complicated, and that from consideration of Ce-Nd systematics the results of Amakawa et al. are consistent with interpretations already advanced for the isotopic compositions of other isotopes in sea-water.
