Abstract

The organic carbon contents and textural composition of a total of 166 surficial sediment samples (from 10 to 1226 m water depths) together with data on primary productivity rates and dissolved oxygen concentrations have been studied to investigate the main controls on the distribution of organic carbon buried within the modern sediments across the Sea of Marmara.
