Abstract

The present book is devoted to the results of multiannual researches in the inland White Sea on the territory of Russia. The main task was to develop new approaches and methods and to create the system of the investigations of the seas and the oceans of the new generation on the example of this sea. In Vol. 1 of the book, the processes in the water column of the sea are presented and discussed. Special attention was paid to dispersed form of substances from the main sources as the sedimentary material to the sea. The results show that only two sources prevail for this sea – coastal abrasion and river discharge. The materials from these sources are mixed in seawater and are subjected to transformation and sedimentation to the bottom. The attempt was made to retrace these processes in the whole water column from the surface layer to the bottom. The attempt was made with using of Fe as geochemically important element. The comparison of two independent evaluations of the masses of deposited Fe at the bottom in a year (direct measurements of the vertical fluxes in the sea with the help of sedimentary traps and summing of Fe entering to the sea from different sources) demonstrated the coincidence in limits of 50%. The main results of the investigations are shortly mentioned in the Conclusions: the hydro-chemical data and the processes of production; destruction in seawater, the elements of cycling of organic matter, the present positions of plankton pool (phytoplankton and zooplankton), and several results with ecological bias; heavy metals and other trace elements in sea water and suspended matter and in plankton organisms; and also the oil products in seawater and snow-ice cover of the sea.
