Carbon isotope ratios of organic compound fractions in oceanic suspended particles

  title={Carbon isotope ratios of organic compound fractions in oceanic suspended particles},
  author={Jeomshik Hwang and Ellen R. M. Druffel},
[1] To study cycling of organic fractions in the ocean, relative abundances and radioand stable-carbon isotope measurements of total lipid extract, acid-soluble, and acidinsoluble fractions of suspended particulate organic carbon (POC) were made. Changes in relative abundances occurred mostly in the upper 1000 m of the water column, with a decrease in total lipid extract and the acid-soluble fraction and an increase in the acid-insoluble fraction with increasing depth. We found lower DC values… CONTINUE READING
