Particulate matter filtration and seasonal nutrient dynamics in permeable carbonate and silicate sands of the Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea

Abstract

This study compares mineralization in permeable silicate and carbonate sands in the shallow shelf of the Gulf of Aqaba. From July 1999 to March 2000, we monitored concentrations of inorganic nutrients in water and pore water at two neighboring sites, one dominated by silicate, the other by carbonate sand. Although the carbonate was coarser than the quartz… (More)
