  • A Shift in the Biogenic Silica of Sediment in the Larsen B …

     · Southern Ocean sediments account for ∼50% of the biogenic silica deposited in the marine environment, and most of this siliceous material has been attributed to diatoms . Diatoms can have high biomass in Antarctic coastal regions [14], [15] and can represent as much as 40% of the total primary productivity in the Southern Ocean [16] .

  • Distribution of biogenic silica and quartz in recent deep-sea sediments …

    All available quartz and biogenic silica concentrations from deep-sea surface sediments were intercalibrated, plotted, and contoured on a calcium-carbonate-free basis. The maps show highest concentrations of biogenic silica (opal) along the west African coast, along equatorial divergences in all oceans, and at the Polar Front in the southern Indian Ocean.

  • Measuring biogenic silica in marine sediments and suspended matter …

    Measuring the biogenic silica content of marine sediments and suspended matter is essential for a variety of geochemical, biological, and sedimentological studies. Biota forming siliceous skeletal material account for as much as one third of the primary productivity in the ocean [Lisitzin, 1972] and a significant portion (2 to 70% by weight) of open-ocean sediments. Biogenic silica ...

  • Biogenic Silica | SpringerLink

    The measurement of the biogenic silica (BSi) content of sediments is a chemical estimate of the siliceous microfossil abundance. Briefly, sediments are leached with a weak base, usually Na 2 CO 3, for a period of time (2–5 hours), and aliquots withdrawn over time. The aliquots are then measured for the amount of Si extracted and a least ...

  • The changes of pigment contents and their environmental implications in the lake sediments …

    This result was supported by the relatively low contents of pigment and biogenic silica in the sediments. Incontrast, the contents of total organic carbon (TOC) and sediment pigments increased significantly in the upper 5cm (~1890AD), reflecting the rapid growth of the lake algae, thus the great increase of lacustrine primary productivity, corresponding to the warming …

     · Abstract Sedimentary biogenic silica is known to be an important parameter to understand biogeochemical processes and paleoenviromental records in estuarine and coastal ecosystems. Consequently, it is of great significance to investigate accumulation and distribution of biogenic silica in sediments. The two-step mild acid-mild alkaline ...

    The biogenic silica (BSi) content of sediments has been used to infer past primary productivity in marine and lacustrine systems (Johnson et al., 2002; Verschuren et al., 2002). Biogenic silica is derived from the fossil remains of diatoms, sponge spicules, and

  • Revisiting the sedimentary record of the rise of diatoms | PNAS

     · Here, we use a diagenetic model to examine the effect of sedimentation rate and temperature on the burial efficiency of biogenic silica over the past 66 million years (i.e., the Cenozoic). We find that the changing preservation potential of siliceous microfossils during that time would have overprinted the primary signal of diatom and radiolarian abundance.
