The hydrography is characterised by the inflow of relatively warm and nutrient-rich Atlantic Water into the central Arctic Ocean. The advection of these waters exerts a strong influence on the climate of the Nordic Seas and the entire Arctic Ocean (Hassol, 2004). HAUSGARTEN is also located in the highly productive Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ), where the dramatic decrease in the extent of summer sea-ice observed over the last decades causes an ongoing northward shift of the ice-edge related primary production.

The region has been shown to exhibit pronounced seasonal and interannual climate variability (Smith and Druffel, 1998). The site is also in the vicinity of the California Current Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI), a programme of biological oceanographic research that has been conducted seasonally in surface waters since 1949. A partner programme to CalCOFI, operating in the same vicinity since 2004, is California Current Ecosystem Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) programme (Ohman and Hsieh, 2008).

After the initial 10 years of measurements at Station M (1989–1998), two features of SCOC variability became apparent. There were distinct seasonal cycles in SCOC that were less variable between years relative to POC flux, and the ratio of POC flux to SCOC declined over time, suggesting that there was a trend towards less food availability to support the 34 A. G. Glover et al. demand implied by the SCOC measurements (Smith and Kaufmann, 1999; K. L. , 2001). These studies hinted at a potential long-term change in community structure and/or function, even if some food derived from high flux pulses remained in the sediment.
