- Resurrection Bay is a single silled fjord-estuary having a basin depth of 290 m and a sill at approximately 185 m. The inner basin waters are renewed annually during May-October, but during the oceanograph winter period the basin waters remain relatively isolated from a downwelling flushing of bottom waters that occurs in the outer fjord as a result of a coastal convergence. This report describes the fluxes of nitrate, ammonia, silicate, phosphate, alkalinity, Fe, Mn, and Cu across the sediment-water interface of the fjord inner basin. (ACR)
