    Abstract

    Two sediment traps were deployed in time series collection from November 1991 to August 1994 at 3000 and 3500 m, respectively, above and below the oxygenated sea water/anoxic brine interface in the Bannock Basin, central eastern Mediterranean. Here, the coccolithophore flux and its contribution to the carbonate particulate flux are presented for the 3000 m trap and compared with the record in eastern Mediterranean surface sediments. A marked seasonal variation is observed in the fluxes of total mass, total coccoliths and whole coccospheres, with flux maxima in late winter and spring. The annual coccolith flux of 1 x 10
