Time series in sinking particles

Time series of (a) TEX86 and (b) UK'37 in sinking particles, and flux of (c) GDGTs and (d) alkenones at 700 m water depth

Detailed Description

Time series of (a) TEX86 and (b) UK'37 in sinking particles, and flux of (c) GDGTs and (d) alkenones at 700 m water depth in the northern Gulf of Mexico. SST from HadISST (grey dashed line), local buoy data (black dashed line), and CTD casts during sediment trap recovery/deployment cruises is shown in panels a and b. Total flux of isoprenoid GDGTs (Σ GDGT 0, I, II, III, V and V′) (c) and C37 alkenone (ΣC37:3, C37:2) (d) are plotted with the total mass flux from January 2010 to December 2013. This figure and additional details can be found in Richey and others, 2016.
