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.

Suitability of soxhlet extraction to quantify microalgal fatty acids as determined by comparison with in situ transesterification McNichol, Jesse C.; MacDougall, Karen M.; Melanson, Jeremy E.; McGinn, Patrick J. (2011-11)To assess Soxhlet extraction as a method for quantifying fatty acids (FA) of microalgae, crude lipid, FA content from Soxhlet extracts and FA content from in-situ transesterification (ISTE) were compared. In most cases, ...
Prominent bacterial heterotrophy and sources of 13C-depleted fatty acids to the interior Canada Basin Shah, Sunita R.; Griffith, David R.; Galy, Valier; McNichol, Ann P.; Eglinton, Timothy I. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-11-07)In recent decades, the Canada Basin of the Arctic Ocean has experienced rapidly decreasing summer sea ice coverage and freshening of surface waters. It is unclear how these changes translate to deeper waters, particularly ...
