dc.description.abstract A moored time-series sediment trap was deployed at the Korea Ocean Research and Development Institute Long term Monitoring (KOMO) Station in the northeastern equatorial Pacific from July 2003 to June 2005 A weak El Nino event was recorded from June 2004 to February 2005, and normal conditions were observed in the remaining periods The normal period was divided into two seasons based on the cycles of environmental properties in the surface ocean cold (December-May) and warm (June-November) season During the normal period the total mass flux was 1 7 times higher m the cold season than in the warm season Particularly the CaCO3 flux was nearly three times higher in the cold season The enhanced CaCO3 flux in the cold season was attributed to an increased foraminiferal flux which may have influenced the seasonal variability of the total mass flux at the KOMO station The enhanced foraminiferal flux during the cold season may have been caused by the environmental changes of the sur face ocean in response to wind driven mixing resulting in supply of subsurface nutrient enriched water Particle fluxes during the weak El Nino period were lower by 30% than those during the normal period, which was consistent with previous findings in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific -
