Field observations were carried out in the East China Sea (ECS) in October 2000, May 2001 and April–May 2002. Biogenic silica (BSi) in core sediments, sediment traps, and suspended particulate matter (SPM) was measured; silicate profiles in pore waters were examined. The concentration of BSi in SPM was high in coastal areas. The content of BSi in ECS… CONTINUE READING
