Abstract
    New maps of the mean monthly distribution of the primary production in the Arctic Seas of Russia (Barents, Kara, Laptev, East Siberian, and Chukci Seas) were compiled using joint processing of CZCS (1978–1986), SeaWiFS (1998–2007), MODIS (2002–2007) satellite data, and field measurements. The annual production of phytoplankton is estimated at 163 · 106 t of C per year. Flux of organic carbon to seafloor is estimated at 68 · 106 t of C per year. The trends of the production changes within 1998–2007 were considered in the Greenland, Norwegian, Barents, Kara, Laptev, East Siberian, and Chukchi seas using satellite and field data. In these seas positive trends of summary production of phytoplankton were revealed, which range from 3.7% to 18% per year with respect to the values averaged over the period of the observations.
