A comprehensive investigation of carbon and nutrient cycling in Arctic marine sediments is presented. The high-Arctic fjord Young Sound In Northeast Greenland was chosen as study site. The fjord was covered by sea ice for approximately 10 mo during 1996. Despite hlghly fluctuating seasonal air temperatures, the bottom water temperature remained almost constant at -1.2 to -1.8"C throughout the year. When sea ice broke in mid-July, benthic mineralization was immediately stimulated by a… CONTINUE READING
