Abstract

An attempt is made to clarify the role of biological and lithodynamic factors in the fractionation of the chemical composition of suspended particles relative to sedimentary rocks, based on data on the content of various groups of elements in plankton, particulate matter, and bottom sediments. The structure of the biogeochemical barrier that controls the supply and distribution of matter in the system water-sediment is elucidated by comparison between direct measurements of particulate fluxes of elements (obtained by means of sediment traps) and calculations based on different initial data.
