TN-249 Sediment Trap Fluxes of Th-234, POC, and PON in the Bering Sea


The data in the accompanying file (Moran Sed Trap TN249.xls) includes data corresponding to samples collected by the Moran Geochemistry Lab on the spring leg of the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP) study from 11 May 2010 to 12 June 2010 aboard the R/V Thomas G. Thompson. BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project. Data are organized by station and sample depth, with station position (latitude and longitude) also included.

This dataset includes the following: 234Th, Particulate Organic Carbon (POC) and Particulate Organic Nitrogen (PON) vertical fluxes. The thorium fluxes are in units of dpm (disintegrations per minute) m-2 d-1. POC and PON fluxes are in units of mmol m-2 d-1. In addition are the deployment and recovery times and positions.
