Abstract

The suspended sediment in whitings contains some precipitated calcium carbonate and is not merely bottom sediment stirred into suspension. The amount of new carbonate produced in whitings on the Great Bahama Bank is substantially higher than that arising from algal production. Consequently, the amount of sediment transported to deep water may be much greater than previously thought. -from Authors
