Abstract

Values of Δ14C and 39Ar are low in the winter mixed layer, consistent with the surface layer dynamics which is dominated by entrainment of relatively old water of circumpolar origin and reduced gas exchange during sea ice cover. The Δ14C and 39Ar values of the deep and bottom waters range from -160 to -150‰ and 38 to 57% modern, respectively. Bomb radiocarbon water column inventories are estimated and discussed. -from Authors
