Optical proxy measurements of sinking particle flux and water-column bio-optical profiles were obtained from profiling floats in the Sargasso Sea to expand the number of particle flux observations in the critical and under-sampled “twilight zone”. Particulate organic carbon flux derived from float-based optical sediment trap measurements was validated against fluxes measured directly with co-deployed, drifting neutrally-buoyant, sediment traps during a series of five short cruises before floats were deployed for approximately one year. The data returned by the floats comprise quantitative particle flux observations made at high-enough temporal resolution to interpret in the context of short-term, upper-ocean production events. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

Sediment trap gel images of settled particles that were collected from the Sargasso Sea between 2013 and 2014. Estapa, Margaret L.; Buesseler, Kenneth O. (Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: email@example.com, 2018-04-24)Sinking particle sizes span many orders of magnitude and the relative influence of small particles on carbon export compared to large particles has not been resolved. To determine the influence of particle size on carbon ...
Identification of juvenile hormone-active alkylphenols in the lobster Homarus americanus and in marine sediments Biggers, William J.; Laufer, Hans (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2004-02)We have identified, by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, four alkylphenols that are present in the hemolymph and tissues of the American lobster Homarus americanus and in marine sediments. These alkylphenols are used ...
