Lipids and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in bottom sediments from the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean, supplement to: Nemirovskaya, Inna A; Romankevich, Evgeny A (1992): Lipids in bottom sediments of the Atlantic sector of Antarctica. Oceanology, 32(5), 589-593

Distribution and composition of lipids and contents of alkanes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons(PAHs) in bottom sediments of the Scotia and Weddell seas are discussed. Comparatively low concentrations of organic carbon (average 0.35%) and lipids (average 0.024%) result from rapid decomposition of organic matter in upper layers of the water column. Composition of alkanes indicates that lipids are of autochthonous origin, and stable concentrations of PAHs (average 25.8 ppb, sigma 15.3 ppb) indicate that they represent...
