In order to determine the dominant processes involved in the biogeochemical carbon cycle in the nearshore subarctic zone, interdisciplinary studies were conducted in the marine part of the Anadyr River-Bering Sea estuary in the summer of 1992. The results of investigation of the distribution of the water-mass parameters (hydrophysical, hydrochemical, and hydrobiological) and the geochemical characteristics of the upper sediment layer are used to identify the natural processes controlling the spatial variability in the content of various carbon forms. The balance of estuarine carbon shows good agreement between the input and output components.
