Pigment concentrations in surface sediments of the Arabian Sea, supplement to: Pfannkuche, Olaf; Sommer, Stefan; Kähler, A (2000): Coupling between phytodetritus and the small-sized benthic biota in the deep Arabian Sea: analyses of biogenic sediment compound.

As part of the large-scale, interdisciplinary deep-sea study "BIGSET", the relationship between the monsoon-induced regional and temporal variability of POC deposition and the small-sized benthic community was investigated at several sites 2316-4420 m deep in the Arabian Sea during four cruises between 1995 and 1998. Vertical and horizontal distribution patterns of chloroplastic pigments (a measure of phytodetritus deposition), readily soluble protein and activity, and biomass parameters of the small-sized benthic community (Electron Transport System Activity...
