Short summary
Particulate organic carbon (POC) flux estimated from POC concentration observations from sediment traps and 234Th are compiled across the global ocean. By providing merged coincident satellite imagery products, the dataset can be used to link phytoplankton surface process with POC flux. Due to rapid remineralization within the first 500 m of the water column, shallow observations from 234Th supplement the more extensive sediment trap record.
