J. D. Wilson, S. Barker and A. Ridgwell Assessment of the spatial variability in particulate organic matter and mineral sinking fluxes in the ocean interior: Implications for the ballast hypothesis Global Biogeochemical Cycles 26

Version of Record online: 2 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2012GB004398

Key Points

  • The global regression of sinking fluxes hides significant spatial variability
  • There is no consistent ballasting relationship between POC and calcium carbonate
  • Spatial patterns in particle fluxes resemble surface ecosystem characteristics
