About this book

Presents an overview of organic-carbon sources, pathways and burial of the circum-Arctic continental margin and deep sea areas. Data from each Arctic shelf and basin are collated, presented in common and parallel formats, and related to the global carbon cycle.

From the reviews: "The book is an extraordinary compilation of interesting information and a succession of important interpretations about the production, delivery, degradation, and burial of organic matter in the world's only polar ocean. ! The three features of the book that make it particularly special are its content, its presentation, and its timeliness. ! Because of the way that Stein and Macdonald have so effectively integrated and organized a wealth of information about the Arctic, many kinds of scientists would benefit from it." (Phillip A. Meyers, Polar Record, Vol. 41 (3), 2005)
