Particulate matter samples were collected using free-drifting sediment traps in the Peru upwelling area in 1978 to assess the vertical flux and organic composition of lipids associated with particles sinking out of the euphotic zone. Samples have been analyzed for a variety of lipids, including hydrocarbons, fatty acids, wax esters, steryl esters, triacylglycerols, alkyldiacylglycerols, fatty alcohols, sterols, and steroid ketones. The purpose of this report is to collate the fatty acid and fatty acid ester (wax ester, steryl ester, triacylglycerol, and alkyldiacylglycerol) for the 20 floating sediment traps which were deployed.
