Arctic Ocean Section Porewater Chemistry Data, 1994


This data set contains data collected during the joint Canadian-U.S. Arctic Ocean Section 1994 cruise in the central Arctic ocean. The purpose of the research was to provide the first description of porewater chemistry and diagenetic processes in near-surface sediments of the central ice-covered Arctic Ocean. Thirteen subcores from boxcores were collected. Analyses for a variety of solutes from the pore waters (oxygen, dissolved iron and manganese, phosphate, and titration alkalinity) were conducted on board.
