Fluxes and foraminifera fluxes of sediment traps in the Peru-Chile Current, supplement to: Hebbeln, Dierk; Marchant, Margarita; Wefer, Gerold (2000): Seasonal variations of the particle flux in the Peru-Chile Current at 30°S under normal and El Nino conditions.

Time-series sediment traps were deployed 180 km off the Chilean coast at 30°S in the Peru-Chile Current during the El Niño period 1991/1992 (6 months) and during the 'normal' period 1993/1994 (12 months). Under normal conditions in 1993/1994 the particle fluxes display a pronounced seasonal cycle marked by a settling phytoplankton bloom in September, intermediate fluxes until January, and low fluxes between January and July. This seasonal pattern is also reflected in stable isotope data,...
