The aim of this study is to investigate the transfer of biogenic (BSi, organic carbon, carbonate) and lithogenic particles from different types of eddies to sequestration depths against oligotrophic background conditions. We use a multi-year sediment trap record (2009-2016) of particle fluxes at the oligotrophic site CVOO, which documents fall-winter conditions with different low oxygen eddies passing through the study site and during oligotrophic, low-seasonality conditions prevailing north of the Cape Verde islands.
