Abstract. Knowledge of accumulation rates of Arctic sediments is essential to the understanding of ice dynamics and sedimentation (Herman, 1974; Herman and Osmond, 1984; Markussen, Zahn, and Thiede, 1985) as well as to the paleoclimates and paleoceanography of the region (Herman, 1974).

2019-10-2 · Thorium is a radioactive metal that is present in the environment in different species. 232 Th is the most abundant natural isotope (Holden 1990; Aggarwal 2016).High Th levels in the environment, derived from either natural or anthropogenic sources, increase exposure to other hazardous radioelements as a result of the corresponding decay series (Kritsananuwat et al. 2015; Danyłec et al.

Thorium-to-Uranium Ratios as Indicators of Sedimentary ...

The thorium-to-uranium ratios in sedimentary rocks range from less than 0.02 to more than 21. Ratios in many oxidized continental deposits are above 7, whereas most marine deposits have ratios much below 7. Thus, the thorium-to-uranium ratio varies with sedimentary processing and depositional environment.

Improved determination of marine sedimentation rates

‘XSage’ can determine variations in sedimentation rate between stratigraphic horizons of known age and thus produce high-resolution age models. Using a Monte Carlo approach, the program calculates uncertainties for these age models and on the durations of intervals between tie-points.

Ocean Sediment - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

III.E Biogenous Sedimentation. Ocean sediments consist of biogenic silica (global average of 14%), calcite (48%), and aluminosilicate dust (abyssal clay derived from the weathering of continents) (38%). The silicic acid [Si (OH)4] and calcium bicarbonate [Ca (HCO 3) 2] introduced into the oceans from rivers are removed by biogenous sedimentation.
