Dear Group:

I have been going through the geochemistry of iodine for the last couple of
hours, but cannot find a couple of items.  When I cook with iodized salt, I
notice that I can easily smell the iodine released in the boiling water.  

Likewise, iodine preferentially partitions from seawater over Cl and I can
smell the iodine from seawater for miles.  Groppel and Anke (1986) note that
the iodine concentration of crops and grasses was influenced by distance
from the sea.
