This work discusses particle flux in the ocean as a major segment in global biogeochemical cycles linking terrestrial, meteorological and surface ocean processes with those operating in the deep sea. It describes how wind speeds and dust fallout over the oceans, volcanic eruptions and freshwater and suspended matter inputs from rivers influence material flux to the ocean's interior and its variability. In this context, the book explores the potential use of deep ocean particle flux studies to record and monitor climatic and environmental changes. Covering all major oceanic regions, this study assesses the role of the deep sea as a storehouse of atmospheric CO2. It includes details on all 1994 data sets.
