Abstract

The chemistry of the Bahama Bank waters determined in 1981 was very similar to that found previously in 1962 and 1963. The major differences were in inorganic **1**4CO//2, a more complex salinity distribution on the northern part of the bank and higher P//C//O//(//2//) values in high salinity waters. While large uncertainties are associated with residence time estimates for waters on the bank, the DELTA **1**4C data are compatible with earlier estimates. Whitings are distributed in a halo around the high salinity (S greater than 40) waters on the northern and western bank. The rate of CaCO//3 removal is 1. 5 times faster in the area were whitings are common. However, no chemical differences could be found between whiting and immediately adjacent waters.
