Abstract : Seventy-nine particle flux samples were collected from 1983 to 1986 using 7 automated time-series sediment traps at 6 stations distributed in the northern and eastern portion of the Nordic Seas as part of a joint West German/U.S. program on arctic sedimentation studies. Each sample represents either one month or two weeks of sedimentation at approximately 400 m above the sea floor. In this data file the results of laboratory analysis conducted at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, U.S.A. of the main sedimentological criteria (total mass, carbonate, opal, combustible, organic carbon, nitrogen, and lithogenic mass) are presented in both tabular and histogram form. Keywords: Greenland Sea; Norwegian Sea, Oceanographic sedimentation data.
