Figure 3: Temperature cross section from linear interpolation of (29.5°N, 174.5°E), (29.5°N, 175.5°E), (30.5°N, 174.5°E), and (30.5°N, 175.5°E) grid data of World Ocean Atlas 1994 at Site 6 (Levitus and Boyer, 1994). Fluxes of carbonate, organic matter (OM), biogenic opal, and lithogenic matter from June 1993 to May 1994 at Site 6. OM is estimated by multiplying OC by a factor of 1.8.

Figure 6: Temperature cross section from linear interpolation of (45.5°N, 174.5°E), (45.5°N, 175.5°E), (46.5°N, 174.5°E), and (46.5°N, 175.5°E) grid data of World Ocean Atlas 1994 at Site 8 (Levitus and Boyer, 1994). Fluxes of carbonate, OM, biogenic opal and lithogenic matter from June 1993 to April 1994 at Site 8.

biogenic opal. The biogenic opal flux ranged from 30.9 to 255.6, averaging 143.4 mg m-2 day-1, which accounted for 69.0% of total flux. Therefore, mean ratios of biogenic opal/carbonate and COrganic/CCarbonate (OC/carbonate carbon) were high (3.9 and 1.7, respectively). Values of biogenic opal/ carbonate and COrganic/CCarbonate at specific sites were as follows: Site 6, 0.15 and 0.72; Site 5, 0.14 and 0.99; Site 8, 0.45 and 1.26, respectively (Tables 2-5).
