Abstract
Within the benthic boundary layer (BBL) and seabed of river-dominated ocean margins (RiOMars), the timing,
kinetics and extent of important biogeochemical processes are greatly influenced by large riverine inputs of dissolved
and particulate terrestrial materials. An examination of our current state of knowledge reveals that the rates of primary
productivity, sediment deposition, remineralization and burial in these margins are among the highest of all marine
