RÉSUMÉ Hendrik M. VAN AKEN, Aleido J. VAN BENNEKOM, Wim G. MOOK and HenkPOSTMA Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, P.O: Box 59, 1790 AB Den Burg, The Netherlands. Received 5/01/90, in revised form 3/07/90, accepted 8/11/90. The vertical structures of distribution of potential temperature, oxygen, orthophosphate, dissolved silica and 14C in the South Banda basin (East lndonesia) have been studied quantitatively by means of a simple one-dimensional model as reviewed by Munk (1966). The… 
The Indonesian throughflow during 2004–2006 as observed by the INSTANT program
Abstract The Indonesian seas provide a sea link between the tropical Pacific and Indian Oceans. The connection is not simple, not a single gap in a ‘wall’, but rather composed of the intricate
Physical oceanography of the present day Indonesian Throughflow
Abstract The Indonesian Throughflow (ITF) transfers c. 15 Sv (1 Sv=106 m3s−1) of relatively cool, fresh water from the tropical Pacific Ocean to the tropical Indian Ocean. Additionally, the ITF is a
Moored Observations of Transport and Variability of Halmahera Sea Currents
AbstractThe ocean currents in the Halmahera Sea are studied using a subsurface mooring deployed in the Jailolo Strait from November 2015 to October 2017. The subtidal currents of the mooring measur...


Physical aspects of the flushing of the east Indonesian basins
Abstract The flushing of the deep basins in the east Indonesian archipelago is studied by means of water mass analysis, current observations and simple theoretical models. The Banda Sea and its
Redfield ratio based on chemical data from isopycnal surfaces
The composition of the organic matter oxidized within the thermocline of the Atlantic and Indian oceans has been estimated from the chemical data along the σθ 27.0 and 27.2 horizons. These estimates
Deep-water transit times in the eastern Indonesian basins, calculated from dissolved silica in deep and interstitial waters
Abstract The flushing of the deep basins in the eastern Indonesian archipelago is studied by means of the dissolved silica (Si) distribution, using water column data from the Snellius-II Expedition
The relationship between vertical eddy diffusion and buoyancy gradient in the deep sea
Abstract Vertical eddy diffusivities (Kv's) have been estimated at fourteen widely separated locations from fourteen222Rn profiles and two228Ra profiles measured near the ocean floor as part of the
Can a Tracer Field Be Inverted for Velocity
Abstract Determining flow fields and mixing rates from chemical tracer distributions is a challenging and important oceanographic problem. Thus the conclusion, that solutions obtained for
Water column anomalies in dissolved silica over opaline Pelagic sediments and the origin of the deep silica maximum
Recent estimates based on pore water studies and mass balance considerations put the average flux of dissolved silica from the sediments into the deep water at about 3 μmol cm−2 yr−1. This flux, if
Radon profiles in the Indonesian archipelago
Abstract A series of near-bottom excess radon profiles was measured in the Indonesian archipelago during the Snellius-II Expedition. The results show considerable variations in structure, 222 Rn
Oxygen consumption rates in pelagic sediments from the Central Pacific: First estimates from microelectrode profiles
Abstract Oxygen profiles in pelagic sediments from the Manganese Nodule Program calcareous and siliceous ooze sites (MANOP sites C and S) in the central Pacific Ocean were measured with
Benthic fluxes and the cycling of biogenic silica and carbon in two southern California borderland basins
Benthic fluxes in two southern California borderland basins have been estimated by modeling water column property gradients, by modeling pore water gradients and by measuring changes in concentration
Reactive phosphate in the eastern Indonesian seas
Vertical profiles and horizontal sections of the reactive phosphate concentration in deep-sea basins in eastern Indonesia, based on data obtained during the Snellius-II and Indopac Expedition are
