PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThis proposal uses a unique opportunity to examine an essential component of global biogeochemical cycles. The logistical costs chartering Russian research vessels for the 2008 Nordic LSBI expedition (IPY-562) are financed by KAWS. This include estuary-shelf-slope-basin transects for collection of waters and sediments from the Siberian Shelf. This proposal covers project costs to study the supply and transport of micronutrients (Zn, Ni, Cd, Cu, Co, Mn, Fe) and trace element isotopic tracers (Nd and U isotopes, Ba) from the Siberian Arctic rivers, across the continental shelf, and into the central Arctic Ocean. This will be used to constrain whether the shelf acts as a net source for essential biogeochemical trace elements during shelf transport. This is a part of the international GEOTRACES project, which has identified freshwater inputs into the Arctic, and Arctic shelf-water exchange, as key issues. Sampling includes "trace metal clean" water sampling, separation of larger particles and colloids, sediment coring and pore water extraction. Short-lived 234Th will be used to estimate removal rates in the water column. U and Nd isotopes, which have been found to trace water-shelf interactions in the Arctic, will be used for provenance determination and water-sediment exchange. The results will provide an important baseline on key trace elements on the Siberian Shelf, which is crucial knowledge for future studies of the response of the Arctic region to global climate change.
