Short summary
Data from three campaigns were combined to look at the enrichment of gel particles, which act as a large source of organic matter transport, in the sea surface microlayer. Additionally, depth profiles showed that the vertical distribution in the upper 2 m of the ocean can be both homogeneously and heterogeneously mixed. This highlights the importance of depth for measurements when studying enrichment and the complexity of the near-surface environment.
