Accumulation of organic carbon in marine sediments: results by Ruediger Stein

By Ruediger Stein

This examine of natural carbon accumulation in marine environments starts off with a assessment of mechanisms controlling natural carbon deposition, targeting effects from expeditions into Baffin Bay and the Labrador Sea, in addition to the ocean of Japan and the northwest coast of Africa. significant gadgets of the learn have been the reconstruction of alterations in palaeoceanic variables and the background of palaeoclimates in numerous environments. The individuals additionally built extra normal versions for natural carbon accumulation and in comparison organic-carbon features derived from various analytical innovations with a view to achieve the best-fitting interpretation version.

Instead, several independant methods should be used. , Prahl and Muehlhausen, 1989). It has to be considered, however, that these biomarker data give detailed information only about the extractable organic fraction which is generally only a small proportion of the total organic matter fraction. When using biomarker data one has to assume that the extractable organic matter fraction is representative for the entire organic matter in a sediment which is known to not always be the case.
