In this chapter, we assess the parameters of the organic and carbonate carbon cycles in the system, namely primary photosynthetic production, carbon supply from land, exchange with adjacent basins, decomposition to CO2 in the water column and on the floor surface, and its burial in the bottom sediments. These parameters represent the fluxes of the organic carbon participating in the cycle, its masses removed from the cycling, and the equivalent amount of O2 released into the atmosphere. The estimates are mainly based on the analysis of the data presented in the previous chapters (Figs. 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3).
