(Table 2) Particulate organic carbon concentrations in the water column of the Barents Sea in August-September 1997


A comparative estimation of particulate organic matter concentration in seawater in various regions of the Barents Sea was carried out on the basis of materials collected by authors in August-September 1997. It is shown that the major feature of near-bottom distribution of particulate organic matter is distinct decrease in its concentration from off-shore areas of the Murman and Novaya Zemlya coasts and the Franz Josef Land Archipelago toward the central part of the Barents Sea. Using a method of mean and maximum concentrations of particulate organic matter, an attempt was made to estimate its fluxes from the surface to the bottom.
