Abstract:

Sediment grain size and composition. Sediment texture and composition data are generated for selected core sub-samples at 2mm sampling intervals for “surficial unit” and 5mm sampling resolution intervals to base of cores. Sediment texture values are expressed as % Gravel, % Sand, % Silt and % Clay. % Mud can be calculated by combining % Silt and % Clay. Sediment composition is expressed as % TOM (Total Organic Matter) measured by Loss on Ignition (LOI), % Carbonate content measured by acid leaching, and the % Insoluble Residue (IR), which is likely dominated by terrigenous clastic (land-derived) sediment sources.

Purpose:

Determine sediment grain size and composition

Theme Keywords:
